In the heart of Monferrato,
In the heart of Monferrato,
a wine-growing landscape inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List
In 1982, at Casalotto di Mombaruzzo, from the heart of Monferrato, together with my father Giacomo, we decided to continue the wine business that had lasted for four generations in our family. We restructured an ancient 17th century villa and planted our vineyards in the Casalotto hamlet, in the commune of Mombaruzzo. Moscato, Barbera, Dolcetto, Cabernet, Pinot Nero, Brachetto, and today Nebbiolo. Since then, with the help of my brother Paolo, and still today with my children Francesca and Andrea, we continue to produce Piedmontese DOC and DOCG wines with passion and dedication, and to keep the tradition of our family intact.
