Balbi Soprani cultivates 21 hectares of land in the municipalities of Santo Stefano Belbo and Cossano Belbo located in the hills of the Moscato d’Asti district. A land of exquisite beauty and ancient traditions which has been recognized as a World Heritage Site for its tradition of wine-making. Steep rocky slopes with an inclination of more than 50% follow one after another. The cultivation of the land might be called heroic requiring the slow and ongoing labour of building terraces to reclaim land from the dense forests and steep slopes and planting vineyards over the millennia.
Among the vines is the bare earth, open to the sky, stealing the sun from them by day. The sun burns all day up there, and the earth is limey: it can be seen in the dark.
