It all began in 1988, when Aldo and Riccardo released the first bottle of Barolo under the Seghesio label.
Today in the company next to Riccardo there are the nephews Michela, Sandro and Marco. Together they take care of all the facets of the business: in the vineyard from the pruning to picking, in the cellar from the winemaking to sales, in the office from the administration to promotion.
A typical Langa estate: family-run, small/medium-sized, strongly-attached to its roots.
Located in the heart of the Langhe, in Monforte d’Alba, on the eastern side of the village overlooking the hill of Serralunga.
The estate extends over 10 hectares of vineyards producing around 60,000 bottles a year of the great local reds: a fresh Dolcetto d’Alba, a characteristic Barbera d’Alba whose qualities are brought out to the full in the “La Chiesa” cru, a refined Langhe Nebbiolo and two versions of Castelletto’s Barolo: the “classic” with all its elegance and the most powerful and austere “La Villa”.
The Fratelli Seghesio winery in Monforte d’Alba (CN) subscribes to the National Integrated Production Quality System (SQNPI), a voluntary certification for integrated farming, which aims to continuously increase product quality while protecting the environment.
Specifically, the wine is produced in compliance with Piedmont production regulations, allowing it to be traced from vineyard to bottle.
The vineyard uses environmentally sustainable plant protection products, taking advantage of the technical support provided to reduce the number of treatments and the amount used. There is also a particular focus on reducing the use of herbicides.
Weed control is carried out on a row-by-row basis, while continuous monitoring of harmful insects and/or fungi means that defensive measures are only implemented when completely necessary.
Every bottle in the cellar is produced using exclusively the vineyard’s own grapes, ensuring that this traceable wine is created with the utmost respect for the environment and the agroecosystem.
