The Gaudio family established their family winery on the Mondalino hill – bricco in Italian – in Monferrato, located north of Asti, in 1973. Beatrice Gaudio has recently taken over the winemaking duties from her father Mauro and is continuing the familys work with the indigenous varieties Barbera, Grignolino, Freisa and the rare Malvasia Nera.
The vineyards, all farmed sustainably, are planted on calcareous soils that are rich in fossilized seashells and marine deposits. Beatrice has brought about many changes, starting with vineyard management to ensure that there is concentration without alcoholic excess, ensuring that the wines always remain elegant.
