Roncotto is unique and is our most prestigious and representative product.
A research activity was needed, started by my father and lasted a whole generation, to reach the current composition and balance between the important vines that characterize it: Nebbiolo, Croatina, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera and Ughetta di Canneto.
For his nature Roncotto contains in the bottle the essence of the terroir of the Roncotti Hill and of all the vines that produced it; therefore his label cover almost entirely the bottle, to figure the indissoluble connection to his origins.
