The Nebbiolo grape, used to make Barbaresco, regarded as one of Italy’s greatest wines, grows in the Langhe hills —rough strips of land modulated by the seasons — in the Piedmont region of northeast Italy. Geologically speaking, this uniform terroir is made up of soil dating from the Tortorian era, one of the fourteen strata that form the Tertiary Piedmont Basin. The Tortorian soil of the white Langhe wine hills is characterised by grey and blue-tinted marl and sand.
This is the home of Barbaresco. Here a mixture of microclimates, vineyards locations and terrains allow the wine to express its identity from hill to hill, regaling all the different nuances and characteristics that combine to make it unique.
