The Vineyard, Its Personality.
In the Langhe area it was always customary to give names to individual vines, to identify them in the common spoken language. Each with its features, strengths and weaknesses. Exposure, soil, microclimate… each vineyard was therefore treated differently. The real capacity of the great winemakers, the one that has always made the difference, is to understand and treat each individual vineyard in its own way, complying with it and directing it, each in a different way, just as you would with a person.
Vineyards in Santo Stafanetto
The historic vineyard of my grandfather, 3.52 hectares.
Planted vines: Nebbiolo in the upper part, Barbera Dolcetto and Syrah in the lower part.
With the rise in temperatures in recent years, the south-eastern exposure allows you to fully enjoy the solar rays with the mildest temperature of the morning sun. The grapes do not undergo the scorching sun of the south and west exposures. This has therefore become the perfect exposure for the maturation of the grapes and the development of balanced wines with vast fragrances.
