Ovello is located in the town of Barbaresco and is one of the oldest and largest historic crus of Barbaresco. Vigna Loreto is one of our oldest family vineyards of Nebbiolo on the southwest slope overlooking the Tanaro River, it is 45 years old.
Vigna Loreto is only half a hectare, which gives us a total annual production of 2,600 bottles which are aged entirely in one large oak barrel.
This picturesque vineyard has clay-limestone soil, but also has the presence of sand, which brings out the elegance of Nebbiolo.
Vigna Loreto has fresh and fruity aromas with a light tannic structure and a wonderful finesse of flavors.
