BARBARESCO DOCG

The blending of the Nebbiolos grown on the sun-drenched, calcareous-clay slopes of various vineyards in Treiso and San Rocco Seno d’Elvio results in this splendid red wine, made following a procedure that enhances their particular qualities.
Intense ruby red with garnet highlights, it has an ethereal nose showing fruit and spices.
Warm and full-bodied on the mouth, it has great structure and aromatic length, and tannins softening with the passing of the years.
A wine with great ageing potential that also possesses the fragrance, freshness and delicacy that recommend it for drinking from its first years in the bottle.
At its very best with rich meat-based cuisine, such as roast lamb and stews.

Company details

The story of the Piazzo winery began in San Rocco Seno d’Elvio, a small outlying district of the town of Alba, in the 1960s.
Two newly-weds from families of vignerons, Armando Piazzo and Gemma Veglia, decided together to carry on their family traditions by investing in a special terroir – the Langhe – which at the time was not yet renowned for its premium foods and wines.
As a matter of fact, with the hard times the farming community were experiencing following the Second World War, the Langhe then were the land of local writer Fenoglio’s “La Malora” (The Ruin), and somewhere to escape from. For the Piazzos however, this was all the motivation they needed in order to start their own business.

Their foresight then led them to invest in the varietal which today produces some of the most highly-prized wines in the world: Nebbiolo.

Over the course of the years, many plots of land were purchased and converted for the growing of the varietal. Then in 1979 the first wine was made from the grapes they had placed so much faith in, and three years later it was to bear the name Barbaresco.

When their daughter Marina and her husband Franco joined Armando and Gemma in the business, they fell in love with this wonderful venture which was gradually becoming more established, and with their enthusiasm improvements were made that culminated in 1985 with the release of their first Barolo: another source of pride for the Piazzo family.

Along with the cellar’s reputation, the estate also grew in size. Today the vineyards extend over more than 70 hectares (170 acres), mostly located near the winery itself, but some in other municipalities: Mango, Neviglie, Guarene and Novello.
