The vineyards of Barbera d'Asti

Estate Cremosina

Nizza Monferrato

The Estate

The farm covers about twelve hectares. Headquarter  of the ancient Palazzo dei Conti della Cremosina, it is located in the heart of the Nizza Monferrato district, universally recognized as the cradle of production of Barbera d’Asti. It is said that, thanks to the beauty and charm of the place, it was on this hill that Arturo Bersano made the decision to abandon a promising career as a lawyer to undertake the profession of viticulturist and producer.

Terroir and Vineyards

Average altitude of 250 meters s.l.m.
Clayey limestone soil with south, south-west exposure.
The generous exposure and climate, combined with the geological characteristics, generate a unique micro-terroir that is ideal for ripening grapes. From this optimal mix comes a very typical Barbera, complex and well structured, suitable for a long aging.
Grape variety : Barbera

Estate Generala

AGLIANO TERME

The Estate

The farm covers about fifty-three hectares in the municipality of Agliano Terme, in the area once referred to as Asteggiana. This wine region, between Langhe and Monferrato, lives in these years an authentic renaissance and was bought in 1995 with the desire to experience a territory by tradition different from that of classic Barbera d’Asti. Since 1996, five hectares particularly suited have been selected for the first production of Barbera Generala and today they are able to fulfill all the extremely selective dictates that regulate the production of Nizza DOCG.

Terroir and Vineyards

Average altitude of 220 meters s.l.m.
Calcareous-clayey soil, composite, rich in mineral components. Arch exposure between south and east.
Thanks to its extension, the estate offers different exposures and microclimates and lends itself particularly well to the cultivation of international vines.
