The Cordero di Montezemolo winery has a history that began as early as 1340.
A family business for centuries - Cordero di Montezemolo
Although several centuries have passed, the winery has always been family owned. The first documented mention of wine growing was about 200 years ago. Today the winery is under the management of Giovanni Cordero di Montezemolo who, together with his children Elena and Alberto, forms a successful team. Not only he, but also his ancestors always pay attention to the work in the sense of nature conservation. For example, only fertilizers of natural and mineral origin are used. All the effort pays off, because the first-class wines are regularly honored with international high-ranking awards and prizes.
Cordero di Montezemolo 's vineyards cover an area of around 38 hectares on rolling green hills in the small municipality of La Morra in Piedmont. In the immediate vicinity one finds the prestigious towns of Barolo and Alba. The soils of the first-class vineyards consist mainly of sandstone and calcareous marl.

The top-class Barolo shines with a garnet red color and treats the nose with scents of eucalyptus, licorice and cinnamon. The finish of this powerful and complex wine from the Cordero di Montezemolo winery seems almost endless. However, not only the Enrico VI Barolo, but also the other excellent red and white wines of Cordero di Montezemolo are worth a clear recommendation and know how to please with their fine character.
