Alta Langa DOCG Cuvée Valentina Pas Dosé

Description

The wine born from the desire to homage the beautiful landscape of high Langa Hill.
The vineyard was one of the first to have been planted in the early 1990s, with a composition of heterogeneous grapes both in clones and rootstocks.
Our Alta Langa it’s perfectly integrated within the terroir, with a clearly distinguishable and markedly territorial profile. The name is a tribute to my wife Valentina: like her, this wine is: plainspoken, sincere and rich of emotions.
