Tenuta Montemagno lies in gently-rolling hills on the 45th parallel, a latitude that has
always been known, right from the earliest centuries, for high-quality wine production. Our
100 hectares of vineyards include the most prestigious Piedmont denominations and wine-
types: Barbera d’Asti, Grignolino d’Asti, Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato, Malvasia di
Casorzo. But Monferrato yields great white wines as well, above all Timorasso and
Sauvignon Blanc, which in our clay soils exhibits striking mineral notes and a rich bouquet.
Our 100 hectares of vineyards include the most prestigious Piedmont denominations and
wine-types: Barbera d’Asti, with its oldest vineyards boasting 50 years; Grignolino d’Asti, a
dry, clean-edged red with generous tannins; Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato, one of
Piedmont’s most ancient grape varieties, present only in the area of Tenuta Montemagno’s
vineyards; Malvasia di Casorzo, a red from south-southwest- facing vineyards, whose
expressiveness reaches its fullest potential in the interpretations of our winemaker,
Gianfranco Cordero, whose expertise produces still and sparking versions, as well as a
passito dessert wine. But Monferrato yields great white wines as well, above all Timorasso,
which Tenuta Montemagno produces as a monovarietal to heighten its classic minerality
and complex nose, as well as its proverbial longevity.
