Ernesto Dellapiana founded the winery on an 18th century family estate in 1974. Having absorbed a deep love for the land and viticulture since childhood, in 1973 he made the decision to leave the city (as well as the lucrative paper business) and return to the love of his life - in the Langhe region with difficult mountain slopes. Over the years, he devoted all his efforts to the development and improvement of his enterprise, the quality and quantity of products produced, as a result, turning the winery with 36 hectares of vineyards into one of the largest, interesting and significant wine houses in the Barbaresco region. In recent years, Ernesto's children, daughter Jollet and son Enrico, have taken an active part in the work of the winery.
NebbioloAll products from this varietal
Nebbiolo wines tipically have rich, but elegant tannins, high acidity and unic scent – often characterized as "roses and tar". After a few years of vintage, most Nebbiolo wines begin fading from intensive ruby to a glorious brick orange color and developing flavors of mushroom, moss, leather and black pepper.
Barbaresco wines are made from the Nebbiolo grape. Compared with the great neighbour Barolo these local wines are softer and ripen faster. These wines are loved for their wonderful combination of tenderness, subtlety and strength, as well as the strong and velvety aftertaste and the aroma of violets.
Translated from Italian Piemonte means ''the foot of the mountain" which is evident by the location of the region - it rests near the Alps which protect the region from cold winds. Nebbiolo is the king of grapes here - this exceptional variety is ideal for the production of wines with a high potential for aging like, for example, the world-famous fruity and balanced Barolo and Barbaresco.
