Located in the magnificent DOCG Nizza area, Vinicola Arno produces a Barbera grape that today represents 95% of our production. From the award-winning DESOLINA Barbera D'Asti DOCG released in the fall of 2019 at the Nizza DOCG Riserva LEONE, launched in March 2022, the Vinicola works every day to achieve the highest possible quality, from the growth of its grapes in a bio, to sustainable practices. We have one goal: to create the best possible wine in this geographical region.
Our vineyards are located in the Monferatto Hills in Mombercelli and Castelnuovo Calcea, Asti. There have been vineyards in our location for over 75 years. We grow Barbera, Nascetta and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
The area is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site based on the unique blend of wine production and natural landscape.
