Visit and Tasting wine in Monferrato

Visit and tasting in wine cellar | about 1.30 hours

This Tenuta is a modern estate in Monferrato with origins dating back to the 1700s. Its 23 hectares are almost entirely dedicated to eco-symbiotic agriculture. Centerstage are Grignolino, Freisa and Barbera vines. Training systems are Guyot and Cordone/spur. The guiding principle of this estate is growing natural and wholesome grapes. These qualities are nurtured in the vineyard and transferred to the cellar, where the wine is kept in tonneaux, rather than in barriques, as of old practice. Last generation stainless steel, instead, is selected for winemaking and aging.
