Biological wines

to taste

Our philosophy

Tenuta Antica is a certified organic farm with vineyards of Dolcetto, Barbera and Pinot Nero, and hazelnut.
We have been working this soil since 2000 with passion to produce natural and quality wines.
We will be happy to let you visit the farm and tell you about our story and our experience.

History of the vineyards

We are in the Langa Astigiana, a hilly region of ​​great charm where the vineyards gradually give way to hazel groves, meadows and woods and its small medieval villages with ancient sighting towers throwing you into a magical atmosphere. Piedmont is particularly suited to the production of high quality wines and here we have chosen to live and take on a new path in the world of organic viticulture.
The Barbera is among the most representative vines of Piedmont and, loving red wines, our choice was immediate. In 2001 we planted our first vineyard and we cultivated it following the principles of organic farming and respecting the environment: organic fertilizers, green manure, mechanical processing for containing herbs and grass cover between rows.

The next year we dedicated our time to the cultivation of another native vine, a red grape variety: Dolcetto, which is well known and appreciated locally.
The first vinification of Barbera d’Asti DOCG took place in 2005 and the choice of the name was immediate: LUCA, our first child name, born in 2000 and grown together with these vineyards. In 2006 I got pregnant and it was therefore natural to dedicate the Dolcetto d’Asti DOC label to my son DANIELE

Once the production of Barbera and Dolcetto succeeded, the desire to produce a new and elegant vine was making its way. After various researches and tastings we chose the Pinot Noir.
The Pinot Nero grape is considered one of the noblest among the red grape varieties in the world, a difficult vine both for the cultivation than for the vinification. A new challenge for us!
Finally in 2010 the first vinification started, it was a long aging in steel and wood. I remember as if it were yesterday, the emotion of the first tasting: the ruby ​​red colour, the scents of flowers and red fruits, the spicy notes. It was time to find a name for this wine, a unique name that represented our life project … and wasn’t our project a healthy and beautiful madness? Thus LA FOLLIA (Madness) was born, Monferrato DOC Rosso.
To complete our offer of wines, without producing white wines by choice, we decided to use part of the Dolcetto grape to produce a Rosé wine. My husband was a bit sceptic but I pushed until I convinced him! So “CARPE DIEM” was born, a rosé wine with a beautiful deep cherry pink and hints of small berries and wild flowers. Perfect for an aperitif but also as table wine, especially on very warm days!
