About Santa Caterina

There is a small area in the Lazzarito cru—towards the Serralunga side—called Santa Caterina. Only part of this vineyard, taking its name from the neighboring farm, is cultivated with Nebbiolo and faces south-west. The vines slope dramatically downward from the state road on healthy soils that tends to be richer than the soils that receive the most direct sunlight in the region. The value of this kind of vineyards is linked to the ability of the vines to produce excellent wines even during dry years. The small area is only 5 piedmontese “giornate” big (less than 2 hectares) and stands between 340 and 390 m.a.s.l.
