Area with a temperature climate with Mediterranean influxes, low rainfall and an excellent temperature range: ideal for vines
Barbera is a grape variety which has always given us generous wines, rich in colour, body and personality, the quality of which is linked to the terroir. The vineyards located in Nizza Monferrato guarantee quality and structure, and it is here that the finest Barbera is born, in the prestigious "Nizza" subzone.
Canelli is synonymous with high quality Moscato, with the age-old experience of cultivating and transforming this grape variety. The prestigious "Canelli" subzone is recognised as synonymous with balance, fragrance, sweetness and character.

The Monferrato area, almost all rolling hills, lies mostly within the provinces of Alessandria and Astie, bordering on other historically significant regions of the Piedmont, in the province of Cuneo, namely the Langhe and the Roero.
On January 21, 2011, in Paris, a delegation from the provinces of Asti, Alessandria and Cuneo formally presented a petition asking that the Monferrato, together with the Langhe and the Roero, be granted the status of World Heritage sites by UNESCO.
The Monferrato is an Italian winemaking region recognized the world over for its superior reds and sparkling wines.
The dry, continental climate, with hot summers with little rainfall and particularly cold winters, together with the special hydro-geological characteristics and the soil, are ideal for cultivating grapevines, which in fact dominate the landscape, making wine not just the source of the entire region’s economic well-being, but above all the true symbol of Monferrato’s culture and tradition.
Evidence of this can be found in the widespread presence of indigenous grape varieties and their use in a vast range of wines.
