To achieve the finest expression of a terroir, it is essential to work with old vines.
The uniqueness and beauty of a vineyard is most evident with vines that have very deep root systems.
The soils in the Langhe are of marine sedimentary origin, with layers of calcareous clay alternating with grey-bluish marl and sand. The authenticity of each individual expression stems from minimal differences in the subsoil. A plant more than fifty years old, with roots embedded in multiple sedimentary stratifications that differ from one geographical mention to another, can draw unique nutrients and microelements, interpreting the identity of the land parcel in question in the best way possible.
Our vines are neither fertilised nor irrigated. The soil is completely grassed over, encouraging the root systems to penetrate deeper.Stories
