“A wine born of the pride of producers in the Nizza area who have fought together to establish a super appellation for the beloved grape variety that is the star of these hills. If you have the chance, try a bottle from a vintage older than 6/7 years…only then will you have the experience of how much elegance and complexity this varietal can develop. It does not fear comparison with the greatest Piedmontese wines, it just needs its “place” next to the food it deserves.”
The new Nizza Docg appellation was recognized in 2014.
Created with the 2000 vintage, the “Nizza” sub-zone includes 18 small Monferrato municipalities individually analyzed and chosen for their vocation in growing Barbera grapes. A Nizza comes from vineyards in hilly areas, with an altitude between 150 and 350 meters above sea level and optimal exposure. In 2014 it was recognized as a new DOCG, and in July 2016 the first bottles were put on the market.
The vineyards from which our Nizza wines are born are in the heart of the area and have soil rich in marine deposits, characterized by a sandy loam texture. Extending between the municipalities of Nizza Monferrato and Incisa Scapaccino, these vineyards are historic to our family having been planted in 1961, the year the estate was purchased.
