The grape variety Albarossa was born thanks to Prof. Giovanni Dalmasso, who combined genetically Nebbiolo from Dronero (the flower), called Katus, and Barbera (the pollen) to create a new vine varietal. In the 80’s of 20th century it was vinified for the first time by Prof. Mannini, of the CNR in Turin, starting the experimentation at Tenuta Cannona, wine experimental centre of Region Piemonte. The first implantations for commercial aims date back to the first 2000’s, while the first DOC with the appellation Piemonte DOC Albarossa is from 2009.
Nowadays, among the very few wineries which produce a wine with 100% Albarossa grapes there is ours with our unique product: the Albarone.
To a thorough selection in the vineyard, it follows a process of drying of a part of the harvested grapes, completed at the moment of the pressing with fresh grapes remained on the plant to ripen.
For Marco it was a dream begun in 2007 that has become a very concrete reality. The goal was to produce a long-lived, great structured wine, offering new sensations and aromas in the panorama of Piedmont viticulture.
