We cultivate about 17 hectares of vineyards, mainly in La Morra in the immediate vicinity of the winery,
including the Fossati vineyard in Barolo and the Bussia one in Monforte d’Alba.
Especially exposure, incline, nature and soil structure are of vital importance,
together with careful management of the vineyard in addition of respect of the land.
The Serradenari Cru
Barolo from the hilltops
Serradenari is an historic Barolo vineyard, a
Menzione Geograﬁca Aggiuntiva (MGA) officially
recognised as a vineyard with precise and
specific boundaries, which produces an elegant
Barolo of extraordinary quality.

1880, drafted by Filippo Ravinale, a La Morra
land surveyor, Serradenari is the highest point
of the Barolo vineyards, with approximately five
“giornate”* of barolo and barbera.
(* A giornata is an old Piedmontese unit of land area.)

warmer area with a chalky soil. the Fossati MGA
produces a more nervous Barolo, which gradually
acquires exceptional characteristics over time.
A relatively young area of land, whose soil
presents a good percentage of sand. This is why
the wines produced from grapes grown here are
distinguished by an aroma rich in floral and red
