Where we are
Located right at the centre of a geological zone called Bacino Terziario Piermontese, the Langhe hills still keep their original shape which was formed 35 million years ago.
The soil is thus made up of a deep Miocene layer of calcareous marls. The percentages of clay, silt and sand vary from place to place, depending on the sedimentation which has taken place over time.
In La Morra the soil is made up of about 20-40% sand and about 35-55% silt.
The temperate climate – with rainy autumns and springs, hot summers and wide temperature variation before harvest time – is a second key-factor for the unique characteristics that Nebbiolo grapes have in this area.
In short, terroir is a well-defined area where natural, physical and chemical conditions, together with geography, climate and microclimate contribute to wines that may be distinctively recognised as belonging to that area alone.
