Steep slope vineyards on the top of sunny hills between the Langhe of Asti and High Monferrato.
Our farm lies on the uphill road from Canelli to Cassinasco (the door to the Langa Astigiana), about one kilometre away from the town, surrounded by vineyards. The grapes we grow come from about 6 hectares vineyards between Cassinasco – on steep hills, with sandy soils and fresh temperatures perfect for our white wines such as Moscato and Chardonnay – and Canelli – at lower altitudes, with warmer weather and more silt and clay in the soil that give colour and structure to our Barbera, from which we make our red wines – . We are in the Unesco area of the “Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato” and our vineyards are an essential part of the hills of the Canelli area. It’s important to remind that the first traditional method spumante of Italy was born in Canelli, giving birth at the end of the nineteenth century to the tradition of growing Pinot noir and Chardonnay, and also Moscato d’Asti, produced in 52 municipalities, was born here: today its value is enhanced by the sub-region Canelli that only 23 municipalities (among which Cassinasco) producing Moscato d’Asti docg, can write on the label.
