description

100% Barbera del Monferrato.  Predominantly argillaceous soil.  Geological profile of the area: hilly landscape at 400-450 metres above sea level. Southern hillside position.  This Barbera displays a deep ruby red colour, whereas the bouquet reminds us of black cherries and raspberries. The taste is silky, balanced and rich with hints of spices. 

Over the centuries the estate has been expanded and modernized; today it encompasses about 30 hectares of vineyards, of which about 19 in the Alessandria province (in the villages of Serralunga di Crea and Ponzano) and about 11 in the Asti province, in the village of Grazzano Badoglio, bought in 2004 and entered in production in 2006.

In 2001 the estate was taken over by the German business family Ehrmann, who decided to buy and modernize this paradise (always with a look to the Italian wine tradition and know-how) to pursue his life long dream: to produce high-quality wines. Mrs. Sabine Ehrmann, first born of Alois, has been managing the wine growing estate since 2004 and as she has been living in Italy for about 20 years she well knows the Italian mentality and way of life.

In addition to its wine production the Tenuta sees itself as an international meeting place for art and culture lovers, organising regular events aimed at intensifying the dialogue between the nations and increasing our enjoyment of life.

Our slogan “il Vino è Amore” (wine is love), which was painted even in the tasting room of the Tenuta, well reflects Mrs. Ehrmann’s philosophy: passion and love are the only ingredients for a great success both on the Italian and the international market.
