Wines & Vines


June 12, 2011

This typical piedmontese vine is particulary sturdy, thriving in clay or marl, which explains its presence in all the wine-growing provinces of Piedmont.

The bunch is long, with a greeen stalk. The grapes are round or slightly oval, and bluish in colour.

The plant usually produces an abundant harvest. The grapes are harvested a few days before barbera.
