In recent years the Enrico Riccardo Morando Family has showed also a strong interest in the great Nebbiolo grape of Langa. FOUR hectares for the production of Barbaresco DOCG locate Neive – Region GALLINA are the latest investments, in addition to the continuous enhancement of the Monferrato native grape in the estate of Castagnole Monferrato. The epithet LINTUITO purely derives by the intuition that the family has had to invest in a terroir of excellence such as the Barbaresco appellation which is much linked to the first lineage. In fact, the “village” Neive where the Podere GALLINA is situated, close by Barbaresco, has been the place where Cavaliere Enrico Riccardo Morando has begun his pioneering and entrepreneurial career.
The limestone and clay-rich soils, obsessive care in the vineyard, wisely selected woods enhance a single grape variety for elegance and pleasantness that “already” masters#winemakers have brought to excellence in the past.
With the label Barbaresco LINTUITO, Montalbera offers completely the best quality Piedmontese appellations.
