A vineyard planted with barbera, with vines of over 50 years of age. It enjoys a very fortunate full southern exposure that ensures sunlight from morning until sunset. Located opposite the winery, Solino yields Barbera wines with a wide aromatic range, exceptional fruitiness and structure.
A historical vineyard of the Mongetto Region planted with barbera, whose name – a moniker of «bosso» – recalls the ancient presence of a grove, cut down during the Napoleonic era in order to make room for the vine rows. The red soil, of clayey and calcareous texture, result into Barbera wines of great character, well-structured and long-lived, and excellent persistence.
BUSSONE - BRICCO
A vineyard planted with grignolino, nebbiolo and dolcetto, stretching for 5 hectares behind the winery up to the top of the Bricco where a grove can be found, at a height of 400 metres. With a good south-eastern exposure, its name is from the Piedmont term “bissa”, huge «grass snakes» that used to nestle here to enjoy the sun.
There is white soil, rich in siliceous and calcareous sandstone – the famous «pietre da cantone» – which is essential in bearing Grignolino and Nebbiolo wines that are polished, well-structured, rich in flavour and aroma. In the lower part of the vineyard, Cortese grapes are grown: these generate wines of exceptional floral bouquet when they are young, then manifesting complex hydrocarbon notes after a few years of refinement.
Located beside the winery and planted with cortese, the Ca’ Milano vineyard takes its name from the old main farmhouse where now Hic et Nunc’s wine-resort, Ca’ dell’ebbro, stands. The slope gently wanes towards the valley and it presents a mix of white and red soils that ensure a majestic structure to the Barbera wines produced.
Ca’ Milano is the symbol of the new vision that we have for Monferrato: a “green” and mistreated vineyard that has been restored thanks to an attentive management of the vine rows. We have believed in its potential, and it has given us long-lasting wines that get better and nobler over time.
From the name of its previous owner, Vasio is the «old vineyard» of the whole property, planted with barbera. The vines have been planted before the 1940s and they now showcase their “experience” by yielding Barbera d’Asti of higher quality, with intense and ethereal aromas, well-structured but delicate, and very persistent.
The vineyard is composed of several plots dedicated to barbera and cortese, but it mainly consists of dolcetto grapes. An area with a northern exposure, the soil is of red colour, rich in clay marl, cool and well-ventilated: it is suited in containing the sugar of this particular grape variety, which tends to dry out the spine if detained in excessive quantities, interrupting the maturation of the grapes. The Varina produces fine, bright and very aromatic Dolcetto.
