WINERY’S NOTES:
The new designation Nizza DOCG is recognized as the summit of the appellations of Barbera grapes in Piedmont. Nizza’s production is restricted to selected vineyards around the Nizza Monferrato village. These vineyards benefit from great exposures (from southeast to southwest) and very low yield (7 tons/hectare). The result is a complex and intense wine with an extraordinary potential for aging. Nizza “San Luigi” is the icon wine of the Fratelli Aresca Estate and their best interpretation of Barbera. It’s named after their founder Luigi Aresca who always believed in the potential of this great grape variety. Nizza “San Luigi” ages for 12 months in barrel and for at least 6 months in bottle before sale. 

ABOUT THE WINERY:
Located between Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, in a unique land recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the winery was a dream realized by Piero and Luigi Aresca back in 1952. These two winegrowers turned their passion into a family business that has never left the rows of Mombercelli. The vineyards are cultivated with respect to the traditions of these ancient lands and the uniqueness of the terroir. Learn more here. >
