The soil and the vine


In the Langhe, on the right side of the river Tanaro, between Alba and Asti, surrounded by the villages of Barbaresco, Neive, Mango and Treiso you find the village Neviglie. Following the road from Neive to Neviglie, on the left you’ll notice a hill with soft slopes, covered with vineyards, on the top at the center, the old master house, and lower down the new living quarters and the new wine cellar.
The ground is clayey and tuffaceous, rich in limestone; a windy spot due to the conformation of the hills and the altitude varying from 320 to 380 m above sea level. and facing south-southwest.


The soil is light-brown, rich in limestone and friable. Its texture is prevalently clay loam, which promotes water retention, even during the hottest months of the year. Recurrent deficiences may occur in some contained areas where the soil is relatively shallow. In these areas, water accumulates and evaporates very quickly and, during prolonged periods without precipitation, the grapevines show signs of water stress. Nevertheless, the grapes mature every year, and high-quality clusters are produced. The soil’s high carbonate content also promotes the formation of aromas, imparting an exclusive typicality, particularly to the grapes which, by their very nature, are distinguished by these characteristics. However, regardless of variety, productions of red and white grapes, particularly Muscat, Dolcetto, Freisa, and for smaller areas, Barbera, always produce superb results.
