Estate

The Adriano Marco e Vittorio farm is located in the heart of the Langhe, at Frazione San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, over the beautiful Alba, producing wines with the unique characteristics of the territory. It is a family run company, who has been producing wine from its own grapes for generations. At the beginning of the 20th century, Giuseppe, the grandfather, who was share-farmer, started his activity of growing grapes. Later on, he purchased a small farm and together with his son Aldo, expanded the family property planting new vines. The grandsons, Marco e Vittorio, continued this expansion, introducing big changes as the wine-making and the bottling of their own production. The farm has currently an extension of 23 hectares of vineyards.

History

The estate is located in the heart of the Langhe region of Piedmont in the San Rocco Seno d’Elvio township. Marco and Vittorio Adriano cultivate vines and vinify exclusively with their own grapes to make wines that wholly reflect the terroir. The Adriano family began winemaking at the turn of the last century when Giuseppe, a tenant farmer began to cultivate vines. His son Aldo joined him in the enterprise and together they bought and planted a small estate.

In turn, the grandchildren Marco and Vittorio, cultivated the love for their land and its fruits, making the company grow: It is the 1994 harvest when they decide to wine their grapes by bottling the first bottles with the label Adriano. Nowadays, the estate encompasses 50 hectares, of which 10 hectares are devoted to hazelnuts, 10 are forested or lie fallow and 30 hectares are given over to Nebbiolo and Barbaresco, along with Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Sauvignon Blanc and white Moscato vines.

Vinification

After a careful selection, the grapes are crushed before undergoing the traditional-style fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 28 °C. After about 10 days the wine is separated from the skins and seeds, and several rackings are performed over the following months to obtain a clear, clean product.
After some months in stainless steel tanks, the wine is maturated for a year in medium –sized oak casks from 35 to 50 hl.
Ageing in bottle: More than one year months
