Fermented in stainless steel, the wine's beautiful rich color comes from fully ripened grapes. A native Italian varietal whose soft floral and peach tones pair perfectly with white meat or fish. In production since 1974.

Immersed in the vineyards of Monterotondo, Villa Sparina is in the heart of the renowned Gavi region. The large wine cellars date back to the 18th century when it was part of a vast estate of the Marquis Franzoni of Genova. The focus at Villa Sparina is entirely on local varieties: Cortese and Barbera.

Piedmont is the most "Frenchified" of all Italian wine regions. The long valleys of the Alpine foothills lead to easier travel to France's southern coast and inland than to the rest of Italy. It is perhaps for this reason that the Piedmontese have long practiced the most refined wine traditions of any Italian region. Terroir-based wisdom trickled down from early French masters (monks, typically) to this area.
Known mostly for their reds (but producing some excellent whites,) from the early ripening Dolcetto grape to the lofty, deep reds of Barolo and Barbaresco crafted from the Nebbiolo grape, these wines are clearly crafted using centuries of terroir-based winemaking.
