Cantina del Bricchetto is situated in the hills of Neive in the heart of the Langhe. It is a small family business comprising 4.5 hectares of vineyard, which produces approximately 25,000 bottles a year.
The vineyards have great positioning and the family work hard to achieve a very low yield of quality grapes providing concentration and intensity in the wines. All operations of the vineyard and cellar are carefully carried out by Franco and his wife, Susan.
Harvest is always done by hand with careful selection of grapes for the best quality in the finished wine. The perfume and elegance of the Barbaresco Albesani provides as much pleasure as the power and intensity of the Bricco Sterpone Barbera.
The upper part of the cellar is dedicated to the reception of the grapes in stainless steel tanks. For those wines that undergo a longer maceration period, small glazed cement tanks are still used providing a natural control of the temperature during fermentation. The wine arrives in the underground cellar by gravity. Here, metal cages filled with stones keep the humidity at above 60%, optimal conditions for the preservation of wooden barrels.
