55% Barbera and 45% Freisa. Grapes are harvested from two adjacent vineyards with a laminated fossil Sant’Agata marl soil, made looser by alluvial debris and stones. This wine combines the charisma of both varieties: the nose is sophisticated like Barbera and wild like Freisa, intricate and explicit. This wine was first made in 1970 by Carlo – Carlin Vaira, Aldo's grandfather, from a vineyard planted with Barbera and Freisa. It was a wine loved by the family and the guests, making the great-grandfather proud enough to bottle and label it – a rare dignity for a wine destined for domestic consumption in those days. The farmhouse illustrated on the label is that of the Vaira family, where Aldo started in 1972.
