Dolcetto d’Alba DOC Buran

<<We can’t pass it up!>>

These were the words of Armando in 1985, still recovering at the hospital after a surgery. He was referring to Cascina Buran, near the winery, so called because property of Mr. Borrano, a fruit trader who decided to put his house up for sale.

The land surrounding the old house was planted with orchards and in particular plums.

Armando and Franco decided that a large part of those lands would be destined for the cultivation of Dolcetto in which, even today, among the fruity notes of the wine those of plum remain the most intense.
