Langhe Nascetta DOC is a rather curious native grape. The vineyards occupy a very small portion of land, making this appellation one of the jewels of our production.

Nascetta was a variety that risked becoming lost altogether, nothing more than a memory, due to the fact that very few people in the area were cultivating it, and this is why we particularly enjoy making this wine.
