The largest of the main Piemontese growing zones, Alba is an appellation overflowing with wines of unrivalled stylistic opulence.  Leading the way is the renowned Barolo commune, epicenter of Piemonte’s Nebbiolo’s production and home to the region’s finest cru sites.  Comprised of five hill-top villages each boasting their own unique microclimate, this commune has come to be synonymous with the production of tannic, structured wines of superior quality.

 

At the very heart of the commune near the village of Monforte d’Alba lies the very famous winery of Manzone.  Founded in 1925 on the grounds of an old school house, the estate encompasses some 8 hectares of vines across cru sites now synonymous with top quality Barolo—Gramolere, Bricat, and Castelletto.  Operated by the legendary Giovanni Manzone and his son Mauro, the winery is committed to producing edgy and solid Nebbiolo based wines with an intense, long finish. 

 

World famous for decades, these wines represent some of the finest Barolo available today.
