How was it made?
In 1925 Manzone Giovanni purchased “Ciabot del Preve” (the Parish Priest house) and he started the winemaking in Monforte d’Alba. Manzone’s high- elevation vineyards and their extreme steepness foster naturally low-yielding vines which produce wines that are approachable while young, yet remain amongst the most concentrated and longest-lived of all Barolos. Dur- ing the years the Manzone family purchased important vineyards on the historic hill of “CASTELLETTO” and “GRAMOLERE”, two of the best crus in Monforte d'Alba.
