Wine Maker Notes
In the heart of ”Nizza”, in Castelnuovo Calcea is to be found our La Court estate. La Court is the name, in Piedmontese, of one of the estate’s three farmhouses: two magical hills where the art Park ”Orme su la Court” was born. Barbera ”Nizza” La Court comes out only in the years that we feel are excellent.
