The “Bianco Angelo & Figlio” winery is located in Agliano Terme, in the heart of Monferrato, one of the most famous terroir for the production of Nizza and Barbera d’Asti. The name of the company bears the name of Angelo, grandfather and old owner. Today Piero, oenologist and boss, manages this small estate with the precious help of his wife Nuccia and Paolo, who represents the third oenologist generation. This small winery is located at 260 metres above medium sea level and it counts 6 hectares of those vineyards, the most of those is dedicated to the cultivation of Barbera, while the remaining part is reserved for the production of pinot nero, dolcetto, freisa, grignolino and Manzoni bianco.
The alcoholic fermentation is carried out at controlled temperature (25°C) in steel vats in parallel with the maceration and it lasts about 15 days.
15 months in wood barrels.
Intense ruby red; fruity scent; the taste is very important with a great structure and acidity.

The Bricco Cova vineyard is located in a central position in the middle of the Lovetta area, recognised and vocated to the production of the Nizza Aocg; here is it where the first vintage of this wine was born. Just above the Bricco dell’Amore and slightly further west, there is Cova: an area fully south exposed. Sandy marls with a small percentage of clay contribute to enhance the potential of this wine in medium to long term. An elevation of 230 metres mamsl and great exposition, give the possibility to produce a very matured grape, which is, at the same time, very balanced.
