This wine tells the story of Armando and Gemma, and so their names come together to identify the wine from which everything started: our traditional Barbaresco.
It contains the strength of the Piazzo spouses, the balance of a couple who is divided between family and work as well as the longevity guaranteed by solid unions, made up of compromises to harmonize different characters.
Barbaresco Argè is indeed the result of the blend of various vineyards located between San Rocco Seno d’Elvio and Treiso, two areas so close but different, joined in a harmonious sip which maintains the structure typical of Barbaresco.
