BRUNO BONZANO

Barbera del Monferrato Superiore DOCG

Bruno Bonzano is made from our best selections of Barbera grapes, hand-picked and crated. All the grapes come from a particular vineyard, the Vigna Mandoletta, part of the Mandoletta estate in Casale Monferrato.

The wine is aged for two years in barriques and tonneaux, and is the finest expression of Bonzano vini’s potential. This is why the label was dedicated to the progenitor of the family –  Bruno Bonzano.
