It’s the new project that has a familiar taste and scent, the one of the “return” in a land that smells like home. The Alta Langa represents our origins, in particular those of Armando Piazzo, whose family came from San Bovo, the village entitled to Bovone, the patron saint of cattle.It’s not a coincidence that the symbols of our winery are the ox and the cart full of grape: Armando used to transport this way the grapes freshly harvested, as well as his grandfather from San Bovo, who carried wood in the same way to sell it at the market in Alba every morning. It’s the land in which we wanted to invest strongly for the affective value that binds us, and to contribute to its growing fame. We thus expand our range of the typical wines of the territory: after Langhe and Roero, today we give our personal voice to the Alta Langa.
