They have aimed the high quality pursued with modesty and respecting the Piedmonts tradition and professionalism;
this was possible also thanks to a highly qualified staff made up by the wine expert Giuseppe Caviola and the agronomist Gianpiero Romana.
The grapes come by 12 hectares of owned land and they are mostly grown on calcareous-clayey ground, not very deep, with marlstone cropped out because of high erosion on the most sunny hillsides.
