Barbaresco, just like Barolo, comes from the main grape of Piedmont: Nebbiolo. But his personality is very different because he was born in a climatically different and cooler area, east of the city of Alba, the capital of the Langhe, on the border with Monferrato. Let yourself be enchanted by the sharp slopes on which the Barbaresco vineyards are cultivated as real gardens overlooking the Tanaro river.
Discover the fascinating villages of Treiso, Barbaresco, San Rocco Seno d’Elvio and Neive, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.These are the only towns where this noble wine can be produced.
