With a maximum altitude of 240 m above sea level, the Albesani vineyard, right in front of our winery, was assigned the MGA, Additional Geographical Mention in 2007: an important demonstration of the link between Neive and the tradition of Barbaresco.

Vigneto Albesani, Cantina Piero Busso | MappaThe soil of the Albesani vineyard is rich in limestone, clay and silt. It is characterised by the presence of Sant’Agata Fossil Marl, a soil structure which, together with Diano Sandstone and the Lequio Formation, defines the geography of Barolo.

It enjoys south-westerly exposure, which is excellent for viticulture, because it provides greater coverage by sunlight and a higher quantity of sugars available for transformation into alcohol.
