Nadia Verrua’s family has been making wines in the hills of Monferrato in the province of Asti for over a century. Their ten hectares of land are farmed organically and split equally between vines bearing local grape varieties and hazelnut trees. Things have always been done properly here and it shows. The fruit comes from healthy vines planted on soft, sandy slopes and the resulting wines are charming, rustic and pure. The idea is not to add too much, not to take away, and the resulting wines are joyful and delicious, a pleasure to drink.
