About the Wine
Right in the heart of the Langhe region in Pedmont, in the San Rocco Seno d'Elvio municipality, is located Adriano Marco e Vittorio Winery. A fascinating family winery that dates to the 20th century.
Today, after more than 100 years, this family boutique winery is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Forbes talk about this winery in its article called “Most underrated producers of Barbaresco,” stating that “thisproducer is making top-rated wines that aren’t as well-known as they should be.” And Wine Enthusiast has featured Adriano’s wines on several occasions on their “Top 100 Wines of the Year” lists.
The estate is composed of more than 100 acres, where 70 of them are planted with Nebbiolo y Barbaresco, Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato. The winery is completely committed to the environment, using sustainable practices in the vineyard and in the cellar. Since 2010, they are organic and sustainable certified by the Green Experience company.
