Expressing these qualities and ensuring their full expression in every wine is the goal of Milena and Aldo Vaira; she came from Cervere, terroir renowned for its leeks, and he from Torino, but both have been toiling since the early 1970s in the vineyards of Aldo’s father, Giuseppe Domenico, gradually increasing the area under vine to the current 40 hectares, with ten of it nebbiolo for Barolo, located in such strategic spots as Bricco delle Viole, Fossati, La Volta, Coste di Vergne, and finally succeeding in forging a unique winery style and an Read more »
