Bricco Laudana is the name of a south-facing ridge of hills between Vinchio and Mombercelli. It is an extraordinary area for winegrowing. The grapes used to make our Nizza D.O.C.G. come, in fact, from these vineyards.
A wine tradition with ancient roots: In 1989 the “Vigne vecchie Bricco Laudana” was the most expensive wine ever sold at the Barbera d’Asti auction held at the castle of Costigliole d’Asti. This great success fuelled an even closer cooperation between the local winegrowers and wine experts from our winery in the pursuit of excellence.
The “Nizza” philosophy is the result of a project started in the 1980s and it showcases a region dedicated to the production of a very fine wine, combining tradition and innovation. The great potential of this grapevine variety and of the soils, together with the expertise of the local winegrowers produced an internationally appreciated wine and determined the success of this project. Sandy soils with a relatively small content of clay deliver, in fact, superior aromas, structure and suitability to ageing. South-facing exposure, good water drainage and mild winds are essential to produce immaculate grapes. Our winegrowers are very aware of this and they have always taken these factors into consideration when choosing the perfect locations for their vineyards.
