Le conchiglie del Roero

The shells are the witness of the marine origins of Roero, a soil characterized by sandstones, rocks composed of sand and limestone. This soft soil, rich in minerals, enhances the aromatic characteristics of white wines and gives red wines great elegance and longevity.

Other wines

Spumanti

Our Classic Method Spumante was born were born in 1981 from Antonio Deltetto's passion for sparkling wines. From a careful vineyard selection, today we produce three cuvées. In order to guarantee the highest quality level, each single step of production, from lees ageing to dégorgement is thoroughly followed and checked by our enologists, Antonio and Carlo Deltetto.

Barolo

Our Barolo, vinified in our historical cellar in Canale since 1961, is from a single vineyard in Castiglione Falletto town.

Langhe Suasì

These two wines, refreshing and a pleasure to drink, are made from a small selection of grapes harvested slightly in advance. The name "Suasi" comes from the Piemontese dialect, meaning "Chosen".

Red wines

Our family has always believed in native varieties from Piedmont such as Barbera and Nebbiolo. Our vineyards in Santo Stefano Roero, Castellinaldo and Canale were carefully selected after soil checks and exposures.

White wines

In Roero we find Arneis, the main grape variety, also considered between the most important ones of our region; our selection Daivej is dedicated to our ancestors. In Gavi region we find the Cortese grapes, while another important one is Favorita, sister of Vermentino from Liguria, that is perfect for everyday drinking. To finish in sweetness, Bric du Liun and Moscato d'Asti.

Grappas

Our Grappas, white and aged, are made in collaboration with the historic Marolo distillery and by carefully choosing the best grapes from our ancient San Michele and Braja vineyards.

Our production has been certified organic since 2017 and our company has received an award in 2018 for its commitment to protecting the environment.
