TERRITORY OF ORIGIN

TERROR

The area is Monferrato, one of the most important wine regions in the world, a UNESCO heritage site. Among these suggestive hills Barbera is produced, a truly extraordinary, versatile and fresh vine. In Monferrato the vineyards almost entirely cover the tops and slopes of the hills, alternating with small woods, in highly evocative landscapes. The wide diversity of the soils allows us to produce very complex wines, with a broad bouquet. The lands are calcareous-marly , white, light gray or beige in colour, rich in calcium carbonate : this allows the production of full-bodied wines, rich in color (in reds), sometimes with a hint of tuff , for ageing ; the red soils, on the other hand, are deeper and richer not only in clay and silt, but also in iron and magnesium oxides, and are excellent for producing white wines. The sands of Asti produce excellent red wines characterized by low acidity and fast maturation. Finally, on these soils, in very dry years the vine can suffer problems of water stress, since the higher percentage of sand does not allow the soil to retain water.
