The Valtorta farm, together with the one we have at the top of Santo Stefano, is one of the ‘bases’ for all the machinery we use to work the fields and the vineyards. The charming building has a small tower and a beautiful view. It is in the Pastura del Barbaresco area. The vineyards have been planted with Nebbiolo for Barbaresco and with Dolcetto and have a SSE exposure. It is here that we found an old variety of Nebbiolo that we then selected for subsequent planting. Other parts of the property are used to produce hazelnuts, of the ‘tonda gentile delle Langhe’ variety.
