The Story

It comes from all the estate’s vineyards, five of the best Crus in Barolo area: Liste, Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati and San Pietro delle Viole. The first one, was born 11 million years ago from soil erosion, is composed by a completeness of micro and macro elements that combined together give to the wine peculiar characteristics of complexity and longevity. Cannubi and Cannubi San Lorenzo were born 12 million years ago from the sedimentation of the sea that occupied the Plain of the Po river, is the most famous and vocated Barolo Cru.

 

They have an amazing complexity of terroir, formed by marly-calcareous soil and a very favorable climate and they give origin to wines with distinguished characters of elegance and longevity. Fossati vineyard was born about 10 million years ago from the sedimentation of the sea that occupied the Plain of the Po river after the push of the African continent against Italian peninsula. Since this vineyard has a relatively young terroir, it is composed by a good percentage of sand and its wines have great floral and red fruits fragrances. San Pietro delle Viole was born 9/10 million years ago and it is the youngest Borgogno vineyard. As its name explain, San Pietro delle Viole, the Barolo has fragrant bouquet, recalling violets notes, always soft and open.
