“Bric” means the “top of a hill” in the local dialect and “liun” means “lion”. The splendid position produces grapes of excellent quality, and low production due to green harvesting, overmaturing in the vineyard, drying in small boxes in the open air and a bit of noble rot (botrytis) transform the grapes into a well concentrated, captivating nectar with an acidity that never allows it to lose its charm.
Over maturing in the vineyard and drying out in the open air in small boxes for approximately 2 months. Fermentation at 18°C.
Minimum for 6 months and afterward in bottle.
A golden yellow color, bouquet of apricots and mature fruit, sweet, rounded and fresh in the mouth.
Pairs well with cheeses, even strong varieties, and is perfect on its own for contemplation or in good company.
10 °C - 50 °F
We like it with seasoned Castelmagno d'Alpeggio DOP
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.
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.
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.

Our Barolo, vinified in our historical cellar in Canale since 1961, is from a single vineyard in Castiglione Falletto town.
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".
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.
Our production has been certified organic since 2017 and our company has received an award in 2018 for its commitment to protecting the environment.
