BARBERA D’ASTI D.O.C.G. SUPERIORE

This Barbera, the most well-known native grape variety of Piedmont, is dedicated to two strong personalities related with the Alleva family, both called Lina. Two ladies with great character who left an important mark, and not just in the family. In Asti there is a street dedicated to Lina Borgo, for her charitable deeds. VignaLina grows in the Podere dei Mossetti vineyard and on the crest of Cornaleto. Its grapes ripen slowly and late, the best expression of the territory-vine identity. Refined technical experience, unforgotten traditions, values and teachings from “old vine hands” have made a dream come true: VignaLina is that dream.
