Nizza DOCG "Mora di Sassi"

The “Mora di Sassi” vineyard is located in the township of Nizza Monferrato, in the heart of Nizza DOCG territory at about 200 m above sea level, south-facing. It is 3.5 hectares large, and its soils are prevalently limestone and clay. “Mora di Sassi” represents an important expression of the barbera grape, a symbolic variety of Piedmontese viticulture. The wine is intense and characterized by its strong identity from its vineyard of origins and from the time spent aging in oak barrels. The result is a mature, full, and complex Barbera.
