They are located in the La Morra commune and today boast a mere 12 ha of prime vineyards in the region. This "1961" commemorative bottling comes from the best parcels of their Nebbiolo vines from the historic Roggeri, Bricco San Biagio and Rive crus.

So enjoy it now, in ten years, or anywhere in between.
