Nino Costa, Piedmont

 

NINO COSTA

Founded by the Costa family in 1851, this 7-hectare estate lies on a hilltop overlooking the village of Montá, to the west of the Tanaro River. This is the heart of the Roero, characterized by small, interweaving hills, yellow-ochre sandy soils full of marine fossils, and densely wooded areas dotted with vineyards. Winemaker Alessandro Costa cultivates the primary varieties of the Roero and the Langhe: Arneis, Nebbiolo, Favorita and Brachetto; parents Nino and Gemma run the azienda.
All of the vineyards at the Costa estate are located within 1 mile from the newly built facility, an important factor in preserving the health of the grapes during harvest. They have adopted organic methods, using natural fertilizers, and no herbicides.
