Vineyards

The Marchesa vineyard is our oldest holding; it has belonged to the Marenco family since 1890 and is located in the Bagnario Valley;  east-west exposure, 300 masl, white marl soil, Classic Guyot  training system. Grapes are harvested the second week of September. Dolcetto is a variety widely cultivated throughout Piedmont. If planted outside this region, results are usually not very good. Its name may derive from “doss”, a dialectical term indicating the slope of the vineyard
