Rusél Barbaresco

Among the narrow curves of the Langhe, in one of the most traced territories in the world of wine, our cellar opens its doors to everyone

About the winery
The history of our company has its origins in my grandfather, my father’s father. The year is 1955, and like many at the time, he too decides to buy properties, right here in the municipality of Barbaresco, and start growing vines. The company is mixed at the time, and the harvest is mainly used for subsistence and personal consumption. Already he, however, begins to understand the art of winemaking, to experience the most productive choices and to define his “agricultural belief”. In those years, my parents move to Turin where they open a business in the center and stay for 10 years. During this stay, my father decides to buy a small company in the Moscato d’Asti area, giving life to his personal grape production in the 1980s. Determined to retrace the footsteps of his father, in 2000 he sells the Moscato winery and buys 6 hectares in the municipality of Barbaresco, where he produces grapes for sale. The vines grown are Moscato d’Asti, Nebbiolo, Langhe Chardonnay and Dolcetto d’Alba.

History & Geography
Once the whole Po Valley was sea. We are talking about almost 5 million years ago, in the Pliocene Age, in which the coastline passed near Turin. Back then Monferrato was a long and low island, while further south the Langhe formed a peninsula on the Padano sea. This explains how these lands still remain an important source of fossils, but also makes terroir and morphological traits understandable. For example, analyzing the structure of the hills and their slopes, the path of the water in its slow retreat appears evident, leaving behind sediments, veins, layers of marl.In southern Piedmont there are three oenological zones, each of which is characterized by a different geological conformation. If we imagine the water of a sea that retreats, flowing into the rivers to slowly move away from the land, it is easier to understand the structure of these hills.In fact, the Tanaro river flows between them; on its right bank the areas of Barolo and Barbaresco, on the left the Roero.
