THE YOUNG VINEYARDS OF PIANOALTO DI CRENA
Our Pianoalto estate in Crena hosts wonderful Barbera vineyards, gather around the farmhouse on the Crena hill, overlooking the delightful village of Agliano and its thermal springs in the valley. The vineyards on the hilltop are flat, and from the most recent vines originates LIBERA, our Barbera d’Asti aged in bottle. All wines produced in this farmhouse are prestigious and highly representative on the most classical area of Monferrato Astigiano, being the village in the Nizza area. The weather flag that appears on the label represents the one on the rooftop of the Pianoalto Farmhouse.
