"I was born in the little town of Canelli, in Piedmont, halfway between Langhe and Monferrato wine growing regions. The rolling hills are bursting with vineyards where you can’t help but ‘breathe in’ the wonderful scent of the harvest…"
Gabriele’s vineyards, nestled in ideal locations throughout the Langhe and Roero regions, flourish with indigenous varietals of distinct quality; with the utmost attention to terrior and climate he grows moscato, arneis, nebbiolo, and barbera. His pure affection for wine, arts, and great food brought him back to his roots, back to where his family has made their home for generations. It is here, in the Langhe and Roero that he grows his vineyards and dedicates his passion to bringing excellent quality wines to international markets with pride.
After years in the wine world, working for major producers, he left the rat race for a more authentic way of life. Attention to details is the cornerstone of his business- the land, the sun, the care in the fields: these are the building blocks on which to build quality wines. Absolute minimal use of pesticide treatments- all these elements combined to offer unique wines that have the richest aromas and flavors. These are wines capable of seducing and expressing great emotions. And who doesn’t enjoy a spirited seduction from time to time?
