Vineyards

MANAGING
THE ESSENTIAL

100 hectares of arable lands, woods and poplar groves, of which 20 are dedicated to local vines. Barbera vines of more than 80 years of age. Only our own grapes.

Hic et Nunc can count on a unique biodiversity that can be found in the world of Piedmont wine, dominated by monoculture. A type of diversity that we have decided to preserve by adopting winemaking processes particularly attentive to the landscape. Our attention to the landscape translates to an active defence of the soil and the ecosystem found in the vineyard. Grassing of the rows; agricultural practices against the compacting and washing away of soil; treatment use is limited to the bare minimum, “Well-thought out” and measured agronomic management based on the necessities of each vineyard, depending on the age, the strength of the plants, position and soil characteristics.

We manually work all of our vineyards and we process grapes that exclusively come from our lands. We apply good practices for the “thermal” control of the vineyard, a fundamental element given the state of climatic change we are currently going through. A double round in the vineyard to thin out foliage based on exposure ensures that bunches are always adequately subjected to sunlight: making sure that they don’t incur in sunburn, damages to the grapes or, worst, a halt in maturation. An agronomic management that is “well-thought out” and measured based on the results of careful assessments of each vineyard, taking attentive account of age, strength of the plants, position and soil characteristics.

 

We call it
“essential management” of the vineyard:
only what is strictly necessary,
where it is needed, when it is needed:
hic et nunc.

BRICCO

From the Piedmontese word “bric” ("top of the hill"), Bricco rises up to the hilltop at 285 meters above sea level and its soil is white and marly. This is where the grapes for our Altromondo Piemonte Doc Grignolino come from.

BUSSONE

From the Piedmontese word “bissun” (“snake”): in this area there were concrete tanks (called “trö”) filled with snakes. Bussone, with its white and marly soil, gives both cortese grapes for our Monolite Piemonte Doc Cortese and grignolino grapes for our brut sparkling wine Mète.

CA’ MILANO

Characterized by a mix of clay and limestone soils, Cà Milano is named after an old farmhouse, today home of the Cà dell'ebbro wine resort. Because of its cool " downhill" position, its grapes are recommended for making our Màrsia brut sparkling wine.

BOSSOLA

Its toponym, "bosso", tells about an old grove that was cut down during the Napoleonic era to make room for vines. The red clayey-calcareous soil turns the grapes into a strong textured and excellent Barbera: this is the place where Monumento Barbera del Monferrato Superiore DOCG comes from.

BALDEA

Composed of lots planted mainly with dolcetto grapes, ripen slowly due to their northern position, exalting their fragrance and freshness. This is the true secret of our Mondano Monferrato Doc Dolcetto.

SOLINO

A barbera Vineyard, with more than 50 year old rootstocks. The southern exposure gives the barbera a wide range of aromas and a superior structure, just like our Femminile Singolare Barbera del Monferrato.

VASIO

Named after the former owner, its rootstocks were planted way before the '40s and today give a superior barbera grapes with intense and ethereal scents for our Monumento Barbera del Monferrato Superiore Docg.

DIEGO

It is named after the house (now destroyed) of its first owner, with a marly soil, the best bunches are found in the lower part of Diego and are mainly used, from season to season, for our different kinds of Barbera wines.

FELICE – CÀ CIMA

They are the two vineyards outside the Mongetto’s hill. Their soil is marny and here we grow up the grapes used for our Femminile Singolare – Barbera del Monferrato
