"Nizza" is a Barbera d‘Asti Superiore wine produced in a small area
surrounding Nizza Monferrato, made up of 18 municipalities.
The grapes exclusively come from old vineyards
high up on hillsides with exposure at midday. The yield is
restricted to less than 70 quintals per hectare, equal to 48
hectolitres of wine. These are the essential conditions for
creating this well-structured wine.
Fining in large oak barrels allows for a fully matured and well-
balanced wine.
