I Brè’s Vineyards
Monvigliero is the most important and well known Cru in this region. It is located northeast of the town of Verduno, home to nearly 560 inhabitants. I Brè’s vineyard is seated at about 300 meters high at the hill’s summit, from which it is possible to take in the magnificent panoramas of Langhe and Roero. This is the is region particularly well-suited for cultivation of the Nebbiolo da Barolo grape, one noted for its advantageous growing conditions.
San Lorenzo is another very important area with conditions particularly well suited to the growth and cultivation of the Nebbiolo grape. The vineyard is located southeast of Monvigliero and is entirely exposed at mid-day. The vineyards in this area benefit from the compact soil rich in calcium. Five of Brè’s hectares are located here in San Lorenzo.
This vineyard which sits opposite Monvigliero is situated about 250 meters high below The Appiano. The Nebbiolo, Verduno Pelaverga and Barbera grapes grown here benefit from both southeastern and southwestern sun exposure ideal conditions for these varietals.
Perno has the highest concentration of land use for cultivation in the region. It’s Helvetic soil, composed of Mesozoic marine limestone, marls, and shales is perfectly suited to growing Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Pelaverga. The wines produced from these vineyards are particularly noted for their magnificent color and intense sensory expression.
