Ciabot Berton | Barolo Masters
The winery now in use was built in the 1980s on the site which has always been known as Ciabot Berton. The small building (ciabot, in Piedmont dialect) standing here once belonged to a certain Berton. Who interestingly had attempted to set up manufacturing fireworks here, and had burnt out the building and destroyed its roof. So, this old ruin can still be seen from the winery and is surrounded by the Nebbiolo vineyard. The new winery is therefore sited in a dominant position. Here enjoying views of the wonderful landscape which opens out over the hills of Barolo. And on clear days, gazing towards the north, the peaks of Cervino and the mass of Monte Rosa stand out. While in the opposite direction the villages of the Alta Langa form a hinge between Piedmont and Liguria.
The cru Roggeri orientated south-east at an altitude of 300m above sea level. Then extending from the village of the same name (mentioned already in the land registry of La Morra in 1477) to the edge of our winery.
So the 4 hectares of Nebbiolo for Barolo cultivated here are divided into three sections. Notably including our oldest vineyards, planted about 40-50 years ago. While the age of the vineyards, combined with deep clayey soil, contribute to producing a grape rich in polyphenols. Hence conferring he grand structure and noble character to the Barolo which takes its name from the Roggeri vines. The perfect venue for Ciabot Berton Roggeri Barolo 2012.
