This property adjoining the estate’s historic hub has been dedicated entirely to the growing of Barbera vines.
It lies at an altitude of 250 metres with a southerly aspect, and is divided equally between marly, calcareous and clayey soil.
The soil’s properties give the end product structure and roundness on the palate, and a long cellar life.
The name “Mugiot” meaning “little pile” was the nickname of the winery’s founder Armando Piazzo, and in this case denotes how the production of grapes on this vineyard is limited and focused on expressing the highest quality.
Our Barbera d’Alba DOCG Mugiot is crafted from the grapes grown here.
