The Metodo Classico of Loazzolo

Borgo Maragliano is situated at 450 meters above sea level, on a natural terrace of the Langhe hills, in the heart of Loazzolo, close to Asti. It is a very special place for growing grapes, crossed by the Marin, an onshore wind coming from the Mar Ligure which favors the maturation of the grapes, enhancing their aromas and fragrances.

A perfectly suited environment

The land around Loazzolo is characteristic in its geological formation, with typical marls and sandstone. Borgo Maragliano includes an area of 44  hectares of vineyards among the 84 of their property, consisting of wood and hazelnut groves. The 22 hectares of Loazzolo vineyards offer a combination of sandy-clay soil plus the right altitude, that make this the perfect environment for Chardonnay, Pinot Nero and Riesling grapes and the elegant classic method bubbles Carlo Galliano produced first in the area.

The beginngin of experimentation

In the early eighties Dr. Corino, a man of great intuition and director of the Experimental Institute for Viticulture in Asti, after evaluating the particular soil and climatic situation of Loazzolo, suggested the planting of experimental vineyards of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to produce the Classic Method in Loazzolo. Challenge that Giuseppe and Carlo face with enthusiasm and determination.
