At Diano d’Alba, we find a land of great wine making tradition, a natural balcony overlooking the Bassa Langa. Since 1995, we have made the most of the vines covering these hills surrounding Alba: dolcetto and barbera. Grapes that give their names to two highly celebrated Piedmont wines.
Dolcetto di Diano d’Alba has a decidedly fruity bouquet and we offer it as a ready to drink wine: on the nose, it presents a strong grapeyness combined with aromas of black fruit. Barbera d’Alba, historically more acidic, evolves into a wine with character and good structure due to our excellent work in the vineyard and cellar.
We produce these two grand Piedmontese wines, here in San Quirico, as well as others that are typical of the area: Barbaresco, Nebbiolo d’Alba, Langhe Rosso, Gavi, Moscato, and Arneis.
Dolcetto di Diano d’Alba is produced throughout the entire municipal territory, which winds its way over the hills at a constant altitude of 500 meters. These ridges have the best exposure and are thus the most suited to viticulture. In Piedmontese, they are called “sörì”, meaning, “well positioned”.
