TERROIR

A TERROIR THAT IS UNIQUE, EXCEPTIONAL, INIMITABLE: THE MONFERRATO

Region: Piedmont, North-West Italy, between Cisterna d’Asti and Nizza Monferrato, around 50 km from Turin

Localisation: they are mainly located in “Roero”, “Langhe”, and the “Colline Alfieri” in the area of “del Monferrato”; three zones that are particularly suited to vine growing (the many hills ensure perfect exposure to the sun). They are also influenced by the nearby alps (hard winters and cool summer nights) and by the mediterranean sea which is only 80 km away. For the red vines the land is basically limestone, for the whites it is sandy-clayey.
