Pietro Cassina personally leads, together with his wife and children, a small wine estate of about 7 hectares in Lessona, in Alto Piemonte, whose vineyards have belonged to his family for several generations.
Tradition, Passion and Ambition:
Keeping our philosophy, we are committed to always offering better quality, crafting fine wines, always elegant and suitable for both great celebration and for everyday life.
The winery is located in Lessona, a small town in the north-east of Piedmont surrounded by hills and mountains, not far from Monte Rosa and Turin.
The wine estate covers an area of about 7 hectares of vineyards surrounded by woods that create a particular microclimate for the cultivation of Nebbiolo. The Lessona area is one of the few areas in Italy and in the world where Nebbiolo finds its ideal environment.
We are in the Super Volcano area, officially recognized by Unesco, where the "terroir" is very particular, with a very acidic pH (3.5-3.7 ph). The abandonment vineyards in Alto Piemonte at the beginning of the twentieth century meant that today's vineyards, about 1300 hectares, are located in the best exposed plots and surrounded by woods that create an ideal microclimate for the cultivation of local native vines (Nebbiolo, Vespolina, Croatina, Erbaluce and Uva Rara). The Monte Rosa massif protects us from harsh winters and too hot summers.
Our Tastings normally include a journey inside the winery to discover the places of production and the cellar in order to observe where the wines are aged before being bottled. After that, passing through a tunnel of two illuminated waterfalls that regulate the humidity of the cellar, we will go up to the starry room where the tasting will begin.
