OUR PRODUCERS: Conti Nuvoli

The Conti Nuvoli di Grinzane family has a long history in Piedmont wine-making. Their commitment to their vineyards goes back over 400 years – a tradition for passion and respect that Risbaldo Nuvoli and his son continued when they switched their vineyards to organic farming in 2011.

The decision was born out of their love for the vineyards, their origins, territory and the desire to preserve this lovely place for future generations.

Here in the heart of the Monferrato the Conti Nuvoli di Grinzane farmhouse “Torrazzo” was born in the hills of San Damiano d’Asti.

The history of Torrazzo dates back to the XIII century with the Castle of Marcellengo and its tower built in 1223, made of bricks baked on the spot.

Since 2011 the vineyards are managed according to organic criteria, without herbicides, chemical fertilizers or other products of synthesis. In the cellar, the wines are vinified without added yeasts or enzymes to ensure the specificity of terroir comes through in the wines. Only a bare minimum of sulphur is used.

The Barbera d’Asti DOCG is the most typical and traditional wine in these territories. They only use grapes coming from the family vineyards, the “Cru Castello” and “Cru Monpioloso”. The wine is matured for at least 12 months (up to 36 months for the Barbera Superiore) in oak barrels in the ancient cellars under the property.

A blend of innovation and tradition, of progress and safeguarding the value of their identity and origins.
