Cecilia Monte

LANGHE – Via Serracapelli, 17 – Neive (CN) –

A female story

Within the Langa district, often characterised by male stories, Cecilia Monte, a Winegrower from Neive, as the company logo says, represents one of the rare ‘female examples’ belonging to the firmament of Piedmontese wine excellences.

In the year 2000, after completing her university course, she decided to directly manage the family estate, located in a wonderful and little known corner of the prestigious town of Neive and began to transform a high vocation piece of land, hitherto used to provide grapes to cooperatives, in a new story, starting to vinify her own grapes and bottle her own wine. Her father Paolo, still actively present in the company, to whom moreover a Barbaresco has been dedicated taken from his favourite rows, passed on to his daughter the same feeling that he had felt at the beginning in trying his hand at such a fascinating and arduous task.

The Serracapelli cru, situated at the northern limit of the Barbaresco denomination, at approx. 300 metres above sea level, an area still little explored and therefore rich in natural biodiversity, represents the setting and the vine heritage within which one can admire the work of Cecilia Monte.

The wines taken from the fruits of this strip of land are characterised by a series of peculiarities, including a refreshing balsamic hint that characterises the depth of taste, along with a never intrusive structure; sometimes a little introverted in youth, they possess an uncommon ageing potential.

It is not uncommon to meet Cecilia among the vine rows, just as you can frequently find her busy in the daily commitments that the small but well-equipped cellar involves.

The varieties present in the vineyards are those typical of the area, namely Dolcetto, Barbera and above all Nebbiolo, with some parcels that are now about 50 years old.

The premises that house the winemaking and ageing cellar are particularly well appointed, as too is the tasting room, overlooking a spectacular glimpse of Langa, ideal setting to meet and taste and comment on the fruits of such an extraordinary land.

Um lugar especial, vinhos muito bem integrados com a madeira, e forma como a Cecilia fala do seu trabalho, formam todo um cenário, de uma grande degustação!

Brilliant wine – from the deeply traditional to the deeply innovative – a friendly welcome and fascinating insights. A highlight of a recent tasting trip through Barbaresco.

What a beautiful introduction to the Piedmont region. Fabio was an amazing host, taking us on a tour of the vines and winemaking process before finishing with a tasting. The tasting was so detailed and we felt like we learned so much. At the end, he even gave us a bunch of recommendations for places to eat in the region. What a fabulous afternoon. Thank you!
