MonBirone is one of the hills surrounding the town of Canale, easily reachable on foot from the town center and historically known for the sanctuary dedicated to the Madonna di MonBirone which is located on its top.
The family wine tradition was born from the MonBirone cru, since in 1918 the great-grandmother Tilde bought the first small plot, already vines in Barbera then, where the excellent results of the vine were already known on the clay-limestone soils of this hill.
Our vineyards rise around the top of the hill, with an area that has expanded over the years reaching 4 hectares; the east, south and west exposure allows to obtain a constant quality, since the different exposures are able to mitigate the differences in the ripening of the grapes brought by the various vintages.
It is here that, after more than a century, our best Barbera grapes are born from which we obtain Barbera d'Alba MonBirone, a powerful wine, of great elegance and structure, thanks also to the age of the vines which have now reached 40 years . The grapes are harvested normally in the first 15 days of October, after the pressing the alcoholic fermentation begins, carried out in the traditional way and with a duration of 15/20 days; after racking, the wine is placed in 228-liter wooden barrels where malolactic fermentation and aging will take place, which can last between 15 and 20 months. After bottling, the wine rests for about 6 months in our underground cellars and then is put on the market about two years after the harvest.
