Ca’ Bianca was founded in the early 1950s. The property covers 39 hectares of vineyards that fan out around the vinification and bottling cellar in one solid block. Most of the plots are planted to Barbera, a typical variety of the zone, that has been used here since the 2008 vintage for the Barbera d’Asti DOCG. The Barbera is flanked by a range that also offers a selection of the best wines in the territory, including the Moscato d’Asti, Dolcetto d’Acqui, Gavi and Barolo. In keeping with this cellar’s mission to be young and dynamic, the range also contains several new wines – Langhe Nebbiolo and Roero Arneis – in addition to its classic products.

Selected parcels on the hills of Alto Monferrato at Alice Bel Colle, made up of sedimentary marl, at 350 metres above sea level; the vines are trained by the traditional Guyot system with around 4,500 plants/ha, and produce approximately 8 tons per hectare.

The Barbera grapes are picked by hand and vinified by the red wine method during a medium-long maceration (about 8 days) conducted with selected yeasts and at controlled temperature.

After malolactic fermentation, the wine is left to age for 12 months in in new and second passage French oak. The wine then rests in the bottle before it is released for consumption.
