After the 2014 harvest, the denomination Nizza was born, raising the Barbera sub-area under its own name. The possibility of adding the “reserve” type and the word “vineyard” is also introduced. The use of the geographical name, instead of the grape, concentrates tradition, culture and territory in a short name. The production area of Nizza is limited by a disciplinary with very strict constraints on the cultivation and oenological level, but the producers of Nizza have adopted an even more severe self-regulation code, so that the wines presented with the name Barbera d ‘ Asti Superiore Nizza are of the highest quality standard.
