Description

Nicholas Altare loves the land, the countryside, and his work. He has the good fortune to find himself with an estate handed down from generation to generation, and to have found a mentor in Barolo producer Ferdinando Principiano.

Until 2015 his family held agreements to sell the estate’s harvest to other producers. “It was heartbreaking to see my grapes sold to others and then with the help of Ferdinando Principiano I decided to try and vinify the first grapes in 2015.”

In the vineyards the only treatments are copper and sulphur-based, with composted manure from the estate’s own cattle. No pesticides or herbicides are used, and in the summer they use just strimmers to keep the grass in check.
