The cellar: Ferdinando Principiano
The Ferdinando Principiano winery is located in Monteforte d'Alba in the heart of the Langhe. Started by Ferdinando's grandfather and then managed by his father who cultivated the vineyards to sell the grapes. In 1993 Ferdinando took over the reins of the company. Freshly graduated in oenology, Ferdinando began to vinify his own grapes and sell the wines he produced. But it is in 2003 that the real turning point happens, Ferdinando understands that he has a strong and indissoluble bond with his land, his vines and his wines and he focuses on the tradition and the genuineness of the wines he produces. Bans any form of chemical substance from the vineyard and the winery, press the grapes with their feet, use only indigenous yeasts for vinification to obtain a wine that is an authentic expression of the territory. Many versions of Barolo in the different Cru: Ravera, Boscaretto and Pian Romualda and the splendid interpretations of the other grape varieties of the Langhe: Dolcetto, Freisa and Barbera for the reds and Timorasso and for the Bianchi, do not miss a very original interpretation of Barbera Spumante . The wines of Ferdinando Principiano are just like him, true, sicneri, frank and respectful of the terroir.
