Cottà comes from one of the best-known Barbaresco subzones and is a historic cru.
Halfway up the south-west slope, this small corner of our estate is adjacent to our historic Gepin and directly facing our Ronchi vineyards.
It’s a tiny area, producing no more than 15 hl from vines that for the most part are more than 50 years old.
The clay marl soil produces rich, solid and robust wines which marry well with the elegant Nebbiolo.
As with all of our other three crus ( Ronchi, Ovello and Montersino), Cottà is aged in German and Austrian (Stockinger) oak for two year.
