PIEDMONT WINE

Canelli is in the Asti region which is famous overseas for the local sparkling wine Asti Spumante.

We have a "cascina" (farmhouse) and four hectares (about 11 acres) of vineyard in Canelli which grow Barbera, Dolcetto, Cortese and Moscato grapes. These vineyards have been in Cristina’s family for four generations.

We also have a vineyard of one hectare of moscato grapes in San Stefano Belbo next to our villa, which has been in my family for four generations. San Stefano Belbo is in the Langhe region, famous for its truffles and Barolo wine.

The traditions of nurturing the vines and producing wine have been passed from generation to generation, in addition, Cristina’s father, Franco, is an enologist, has a degree in wine-making and ensures that our wines also benefit from modern knowledge and best practices.

Our wines are all dedicated to our daughter, Martina, and we can offer:

  • Barbera D’Asti DOC.

    It is best served at temperature between 8 and 10 degrees centigrade. Serve in small desert glasses to accompany "il dolce" or the desert. Perfect with zabaglion, panna cotta and deserts based on fruit and cream.
    ‘DOC’ means ‘Denominazione di Origine Controllata’ which is an assurance of origin and production quality (equivalent to Appellation Controllee in France).
