Barolo Monvigliero DOCG

Monvigliero hill is historically recognised as the “grand cru” of Verduno and one of the most representative of the entire Barolo area. Our vineyard is over 35 years old and is situated at an altitude of about 320 metres, facing south.

It produces an austere but elegant wine, distinguished by aromatic complexity and depth of flavour.
