TERRACES OF THE ALTA LANGA
9 kilometers of terracing with dry stone walls created at the end of the 19th century, a determining factor for a homogeneous ripening of the bunches both from a sugar and a phenolic point of view.
Barberis Farm has its headquarters inside Cascina San Lorenzo, the historic home of the Barberis family located in the heart of the Alta Langa, in one of the most charming areas of Cortemilla.
In the background, a wild and sincere territory that extends north-east of Cuneo, among woods, rows, hazelnut groves and ancient stone villages, a landscape with an inestimable value which was awarded as World Heritage Site by Unesco in 2018. Charming but wild, in order to tame it, man had to succumb to all the difficulties that its conformations entailed.
The confirmation of the terraces and the proximity to the sea create a unique terroir that allows us to reach and guarantee a high quality standard, obtaining a real niche product.
The terraces represent a determining factor for the quality of the final product. Thanks to their steep slope, these soils are better able to absorb solar radiation and enjoy advanced thermal averages, while the stones return the heat absorbed during the day at night.
