The vines are born on poor soils, blindingly white, which make our wines unique; rich in aroma and characterized by significant body.
The soils are rich in stone (sandstone marls) and accumulate heat during the day to slowly release it to the plants at night. The soils, which have always been suited to the cultivation of vines, are conducted in total grassing. The vines are healthy and show enchanting beauty.
In spring, the rows of vines are colored with daisies, poppies and wild orchids, a testament to the healthiness and integrity of the soil. The grass between the rows is periodically cut by hand; no systemic chemicals or herbicides are used in the vineyard. Butterflies and bees find a favorable environment among the rows, and birds often nest among the vine shoots.
The wines are produced with constant attention to the health of the end consumer and with respect for the environment. Our wines are meant to be a testament to the native vineyards of Monferrato.
Barbera: an old red grape variety widespread in Piedmont, particularly in the provinces of Asti and Alessandria. Barbera was already known in the 19th century under the name “Vitis Vinifera Montisferratensis.”
The grapes produce elegant, long-lived wines with good structure and complexity. Barbera del Monferrato, in particular, stands out for its finesse, good acidity and soft tannins.
At Cascina Voglietti, the Barbera vineyards, facing east and west, cover 1.2 hectares.
Baratuciat: a variety of white berry grape native to the Susa Valley, now also widespread in Basso Monferrato, very interesting for its olfactory expression and freshness.
We planted Baratuciat in 2017 in the old Vigna del Parroco vineyard facing east and chose to vinify it with careful prolonged macerations in terracotta amphorae. Production is limited and the wine, with sustained acidity, is straw-
Grignolino: a noble and historic wine of the area, liked and appreciated in the Asti area since the Middle Ages.
Cultivated by us on 0.6 hectares in areas that have always been suited for it, it gives from its perfectly ripe grapes and after 2 years of refinement an elegant and fine wine for its color aroma and fragrance.
Freisa: an indigenous grape variety widespread in Piedmont since the 500s. On the estate it is grown on 0.5 hectares facing east.
A robust grape that expresses itself with harmony, important tannins of great character. The vine is closely related to Nebbiolo, a wine to be rediscovered that excites.
Nebbiolo: a native grape variety grown widely in Piedmont, best known for giving rise to Barolo and Barbaresco wine. The consecration of Nebbiolo began in pre-Roman times around the year 1840 thanks to Count Cavour and today it is considered the ‘King’ among wines: Barolo.
Monferrato DOC Nebbiolo produced on our estate is grown in east-facing vineyards on an area of 1 hectare. The wine is ruby red in color tending to garnet after aging, the bouquet is fruity and the flavor is dry, velvety and harmonious.
