Vineyards

Located within the commune of Barolo in the area that borders onMonforte d’Alba, in the “sottozona” “Coste di Rose”. The soil in this area help the production of some pronounced young wines which have the capacity to mature, to improve and to reveal the elegance of this important Barolo wine.

Soil

Under the surface rich in organic matter, to a depth of 50/100 cm we find an alternation of blue and grey strata of clay (named “MARNE DI S. AGATA FOSSILI”). In these sedimentary formations the vines sink their roots with difficulty in order to absorb the microelements which will be characteristic of this wine.
