VARIOUS NOTES AND PROJECTS: maximum expression of Dolcetto di Ovada, strongly desired by the Cascina Bretta Rossa company to make this great, noble and at the same time easy wine known outside the boundaries of the area. It takes its name from an eighty-year-old vineyard still in great shape maintained at limited yield. Sparse but full bunches.
The Cascina Bretta Rossa Wine is located in the municipality of Tagliolo Monferrato, Alta Langa Piemontese, on an ancient 600 stone barn located on a 400-meter-high jug that dominates the Stura and Orba valleys, the city of Ovada to the west and that of the stream Piota to the east with a beautiful panorama of vineyards and woods that overlook the plain and that, on the clearest days widens in the arc of the Alps for much of the year covered with snow from the Monviso to the Gran Paradiso.
