Piemonte Albarossa

Controlled Designation of Origin


Professor Giovanni Dalmasso used to practice floral crossing between different autochthonous Piedmontese grape varieties to obtain a wine of particular structure and complexity. In 1938, he created casually the Albarossa, a crossbreed between Nebbiolo (from Dronero) and Barbera grapes. This new variety, that we cultivate in the vineyards of the Cascina della Pieve in the Municipality of Montechiaro d’Acqui, has great potential.
