The brothers Ezio and Massimo Negretti own 13 hectares of vineyard in La Morra, UNESCO World Heritage since 2014, Monforte d'Alba and Roddi. The wines are produced exclusively with our own grown pigeons. 90% of the time is devoted to the vineyards and only 10% to making the wine in the cellar. Respect for the vineyard is their motto.
Extensive care all year round and a green harvest result in extremely low yields. Between the end of June and the end of July, a percentage of excess fruit is cut away. The harvest starts in early September with chardonnay, followed by barbera in late September and nebbiolo in early October. The perfect time to harvest is determined by ripeness, sugar and acidity, weather conditions and experience. The green harvest in summer will promote faster ripening of the fruits.
Ezio & Massimo Negretti have opted for the 'green experience': a certification that guarantees respect for natural resources, biodiversity and this priceless Langhe World Heritage. In this way, not an inch of land is sacrificed. In the basement, chemistry is not the rule that leads: Negretti believes in physics with respect for the terroir.
