Le Strette: Novello and Barolo
LThe Le Strette winery, founded in Novello in 1997, takes its name from the ancient hamlet in which it is located, where the original narrow access road meanders past old houses before revealing a panoramic view of the best vineyards of the Barolo and Langa hills.
The owners Mauro and Savio Daniele inherited the same passion for wine as their parents Giulio and Giuliana. With the help of Gino Lagorio and his family, they instantly recognised the production potential of the municipality of Novello, an area dedicated to the Nebbiolo grape variety with its prized and renowned Barolo cru (Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive (M.G.A.) [sub-region with production specification]), not forgetting the Barbera, the Dolcetto and the Nascetta grape varieties of the municipality of Novello.
Their work philosophy is clear: to nurture these native vines to bring out the characteristics of the grapes themselves and of the region from which they come.
From the sub-regions (M.G.A.) of Bergera-Pezzole, Corini-Pallaretta and Bergeisa, which produce Barolo, to the Nascetta of the municipality of Novello, which includes Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto vineyards, the Le Strette winery brings the value of the region to the key Italian and overseas markets.
The new winery, completed in 2002, is the perfect fusion of tradition and modernity, a beacon of environmental sustainability coupled with the implementation of wine-making techniques that get the most out of the different varieties produced.
