Among the whites, the Langhe Doc Tre Fie stands out as a versatile wine, fresh and excellent throughout the entire meal. To be tried with seafood.
Visit to the Winery
The company is located in the hamlet of Annunziata and is easily accessible.
Visitors are greeted directly by the owners and led to the discovery of the vineyards and the production, in a setting that preserves the essence of the most authentic Langa culture.
The choice of building materials, the architecture of the interiors and the raised glass platforms with visible barrels will allow you to soak in the Company completely.
Everything has been studied in detail so as to place the focus on the wine and the landscape.
The visit begins with a brief explanation of the history of the winery and the family followed by an aperitif on the terrace.
The sight of the hills is unique in any period throughout the year, especially in autumn. One can see 11 castles, the contours of the surrounding towns and the nearby Libano’s Cedar, which is 160 years old.
The visit then continues on to the aging rooms amongst alternating oak , barrique and steel barrels.
The tasting room is large and bright and it is here that Denise serves and presents the various labels.
You can choose between simple combinations: wine and appetizers with local cheese and salami, or fuller meals: appetizers, pasta and seconds prepared in the winery’s kitchen.
