Tenuta Montemagno lies in gently-rolling hills on the 45th parallel, a latitude that has always been known, right from the earliest centuries, for high-quality wine production. The vineyards’ southwest aspect, our particular climate and clay- limestone soils, vineyard operations carried out exclusively by hand, and modern winemaking technology-all these factors ensure the production of world-class wines, ambassadors to the world of the best of Italy, Piedmont, and Monferrato.
Our 100 hectares of vineyards include the most prestigious Piedmont denominations and wine-types: Barbera d’Asti, with its oldest vineyards boasting 50 years; Grignolino d’Asti, a dry, clean-edged red with generous tannins; Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato, one of Piedmont’s most ancient grape varieties, present only in the area of Tenuta Montemagno’s vineyards; Malvasia di Casorzo, a red from south-southwest- facing vineyards, whose expressiveness reaches its fullest potential in the interpretations of our winemaker, Gianfranco Cordero, whose expertise produces still and sparking versions, as well as a passito dessert wine. But Monferrato yields great white wines as well, above all Timorasso, which Tenuta Montemagno produces as a monovarietal to heighten its classic minerality and complex nose, as well as its proverbial longevity.
Our vineyards boast an international variety as well, Sauvignon Blanc, which, in our clay soils exhibits striking mineral notes and a rich bouquet.
