In 1925 Manzone Giovanni purchased “Ciabot del Preve” (the Parish Priest house) and he started the winemaking in Monforte d’Alba.
During the years the Manzone family purchased important vineyards on the historic hill of “CASTELLETTO” and “GRAMOLERE”, two of the best crus in Monforte d'Alba.
In the last years Mauro (2005) and Mirella Manzone (2012) joined their father Giovanni in the management of the winery. Mauro and Mirella are graduated from the famed Oenology School of Alba.
Manzone Giovanni winery is located in Monforte d’Alba, Piedmont.
The entire production is focused on high- quality and limited to about 50,000 bottles per year.
The vineyard ELEVATION (350-500 metres, 1,100-1600 feet), the EXTREME STEEPNESS and the GREAT TERROIR foster naturally low-yielding vines which produce wines that are approachable while young, yet remain amongst the most concentrated and longest-lived of all Barolos.
We cultivate our vineyards following healthy and sustainable viticultural principles
Natural grass is left between the rows of vines, mowed and left on the ground to form humus. All the wines are unclarified and unfiltered, and addes in minimal amounts of SO2.
The Green Experience is a collective, integrated and sustainable certification, dedicated to Piedmont wines.
The Green Experience has three aims:
— to preserve natural soil resources and biodiversity,
— to enhance the distinctiveness of production methods,
— to take care of the UNESCO hilly landscape of Langhe,
Roero and Monferrato.
