L'Albarossa

2003 | A new grape variety at Marcorino

One of the Castello’s warmest and best-exposed vineyards on the Marcolino hill was grubbed up. 

During replanting, it was decided to dedicate a part of the vineyard to Barbera d’Alba Superiore and another part to a new variety recommended to Italo by his friend and school companion Roberto Paglietta, who had become the Professor of Tree-based Cultivation at the University of Turin.

THE ALBAROSSA GRAPE VARIETY

Albarossa is a red variety created

by Professor Giovanni Dalmasso (1886 - 1976)

in Conegliano, Veneto in 1938.
