The Producer

Our vineyards cover an area of about 4.5 hectares, not continuously. The plots, fragmented, develop on the hills overlooking Gattinara. Valferana, Bogianetta, Palfer, Borella… Their names bring to particularly sunny ,well exposed, slopes and valets which provide high quality grapes. From the Valferana Vineyard, in particular, we obtain the Nebbiolo grapes to make our Gattinara DOCG Vigna Valferana cru. It is a particularly suitable vineyard, with a very peculiar volcanic soil, which accompanies the porphyry with an important presence of iron crystals, and give our cru a particular minerality.

Some of our vineyards are still cultivated manually because the impervious nature of the soil and the narrow s planting system do not allow the passage of mechanical means. Dry and green pruning, tops, selection of bunches in late spring, require time, patience, dedication. The manual activities in the vineyard follow the passage of the seasons, oriented to obtain there the quality that will then transfer to the wine.
