Basarin

Basarin is among the most fascinating hills of the Langhe, its grandeur makes it so attractive. Ever since famed vineyard of the village of Neve, exposition to South, from which it derives its name that means “kissed by the sun”. Very steep, at the crossroads of the three villages of Neive Treiso and Barbaresc, it leads to spiced, fine and elegant wines. Became famous through the priest of Neive, that among many vineyards he selected the grapes from Basarin and Gallina to make his best Barbaresco. In the years many other producers claimed this vineyard, from 2018 it has become part of our production. The alter-ego of Serraboella, this wine plays his strength through its slenderness full of character.
