A unique combination: Langhe & Monferrato

Today, the 20 hectares of vineyards owned by Tenuta Ronzano are divided between Costigliole d'Asti (12 hectares) and Neive (8), unique and different terroirs to produce quality wines that – each in their individual uniqueness – represent a maximum expression of Piedmontese wines.

Neive

Area recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Neive is a splendid “terroir” that has already become part of the “Most Beautiful Villages in Italy” and has been awarded with the “Orange Flag” of the Italian Touring Club.

Costigliole d'Asti

The characteristics of the soil, particularly suitable for growing vines, make Costigliole the small town with the largest area of vineyards in the Piedmont region, which have long conditioned the development of the local economy.

In June 2014, the wine-growing landscape of the Piedmont region was recognized as a Unesco World Heritage Site. On these hills, viticulture has been the soul of the economy for centuries.

Neive

Historically, Neive is the “Village of Four Wines” since the soil and the microclimate, both exceptional for the cultivation of vines, allow us to obtain great results both from red grape varieties (Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto), as well as from white ones such as Moscato.

Bricco di Neive expresses one of the most fascinating terroirs for the production of Barbaresco, a historic cru for wines with an unmistakable character, thanks to the alchemy of the interaction between limestone soil, the southern exposure of the vineyards and an ideal microclimate.

The vines grown on this hill are: Nebbiolo (Barbaresco “Bricco di Neive”) and Moscato.

Costigliole d'Asti

For the first time, UNESCO has therefore given recognition not only to the beauty of a territory painted with vineyards, castles and medieval towers, but also to the tireless work of men and women who have been cultivating the land for many decades.

Costigliole d’Asti becomes a full-fledged buffer zone.

With a limited production per hectare, these lands allow us to produce Barbere d’Asti DOCG.
