Description

It is the most historical winery in Gattinara, founded in 1906 by Luigi Ferretti, it has been handed down for generations until in 2018 it was bought by Roberto Conterno owner of the prestigious Giacomo Conterno winery, famous for Barolo Riserva Monfortino, giving a real international boost to the brand. Traditions combined with new ideas to make quality wines in a territory like the high Piedmont with soils of volcanic origin and cool-dry climates due to the presence of Monte Rosa, Nebbiolo has been able to adapt giving aromatic, complex and very mineral wines. There are 24 hectares divided in four vineyards owned by the winery: Molsino, Valferana, Garavoglie and Casacce managed with the utmost respect for the territory and low yields in the vineyards, whereas in the winery traditional methods are adopted together with innovative systems. A magical territory once again in the limelight.
