Barolo Bergera Pezzole Wine DOCG
Character and powerfulness
The Barolo Bergera-Pezzole, an interesting crü of the Commune of Novello, has become over time the most important wine of the winery. A story, another bet from Mauro and Savio: in 1997 began the return of Barolo Nebbiolo to the old plots of land first in Bergera and then in Pezzole. In 2003 took place the first harvest: from the very beginning it was an ideal wine to allow Le Strette to reach an important place among the best Barolo cellars in Piedmont.
