Beside the famous Barolo and Barbaresco of the Langhe, the Alto Piemonte is to be discovered too. It is full of surprising wines that should be recognized. This is where we met Corrado and Cecilia, who together founded their azienda Valle Roncati in 1997, in the footsteps of the grandfather Giuseppe Fassa. During our staying, they have been able to communicate us their passion, especially for the Nebbiolo which is characterized by its powerful structure and its very present tannins which makes it a magnificent wine of guard.
This tandem has chosen to guarantee low-yielding productions in order to preserve the quality of the product while mixing traditional and new techniques more respectful of the environment. Their azienda includes several small vineyards around Briona which gives to their wines all the characteristics of this terroir.
