Bricco San Pietro
Together with the Bussia, Bricco San Pietro is the other “giant” of the western side of Monforte d’Alba.
It extends from the cool and steep side overlooking the Corsini, from the warm and humid side overlooking Settevie and Manzoni, up to the width of Tantesi and the gentle hills of Pansoglio, Cucchi and Viglioni.
Bricco San Pietro is the area of Monforte d’Alba that has undoubtedly seen the greatest ferment in terms of plants and new cellars.
The proposal of labels has gradually become more articulated allowing to better understand the value and character of this once almost unexplored area.
The Barolo from this area is generally deep, tarry, quite different from the more agile style of Barolo by Manzoni, the Cucchi and the Viglioni.
