Looking to the future while respecting the past
Il Monferrato casalese
Monferrato’s morphology is mainly hilly. The land goes back to the Tertiary age, when it emerged from the sea that occupied the Po Valley. They are composed of sandstone and calcareous marl of the Miocene, the so-called "white lands" in which it is easy to find fossil shells.
They are the typical marly calcareous soils; of light colour, poor in organic and mineral substances but rich in calcium carbonate, clay, and rock in depth. The soil is particularly suited to grow the vine due to its characteristics and it gives full-bodied wines, rich in color, and with the potential to fine age.
In the tuffaceous zones, winegrowers have been using the subsoil for centuries to dig cellars, called “infernot”, where it is possible to naturally store wine bottles at the right temperature.
Today, infernots are recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Site of Humanity.
Come visit our infernots:
