We have always been very proud of this Estate. Not surprisingly, it was our first choice. Here, from Nebbiolo grapes, we create our best Barolos (vintage and Riserva), thanks to the excellent position of the vineyards: exposed mainly to the south/south-east, they enjoy the optimal altitude for this vine which prefers many hours of sunlight. The vineyards of La Traversa, in fact, do not suffer from the stagnation of humidity in the valley floors, nor from the excessive ventilation of plots at higher altitudes: we have the ideal conditions for obtaining great grapes, without which our excellent wines would not exist, complemented by vinifications carried out with meticulousness, sweetness, passion.
“Langa” is an ancient Piedmontese word for “crest”: this area consists of a series of narrow hills winding inland from Liguria along the Tanaro Valley. A landscape of flowing slopes, punctuated by clusters of ancient villages drawn from the harmonious geometry of the vineyards. It is difficult land to work, and these vineyards bear witness to the meticulous attention to detail that transformed these steep hillsides into land suitable for viticulture.
