For few! .
An idea, an intuition, an aging project.

The Piedmontese wines can withstand time by nature. As always, in their interpretation, we work to emphasize this natural aptitude. Nevertheless, some years ago we decided that more had to be done. And "Sibi et Paucis" was born. Every year, we put aside 10-15% of the production of our Nebbiolo wines, the ALESTE Barolo – Barolo Cannubi Boschis, Le Vigne Barolo and the Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d'Alba.

 

It is not a selection, but the will to cherish in our cellars a small lot based on the global production of the year. These bottles enter our "wine library", where they rest under optimum conditions, refine and further perfect themselves. They have the great privilege to grow with us, in the common house of origin. As time goes by,
the harmony in the wine becomes absolute. The bottles go back to the world, enhanced by a special seal that guarantees originality and elegance:

 

The silver seal, 6 years after the vintage for the Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d'Alba

The golden seal, 10 years after the vintage for our Barolos (ALESTE - Cannubi Boschis and Le Vigne)

 

Only for us and for a few privileged connoisseurs, so that gratification has no comparisons.

 

 

Barolo Cannubi Boschis
Our family´s flagship wine, rededicated

The predecessor of ALESTE Barolo, which Luciano has dedicated to his grandchildren is the Barolo Cannubi Boschis. From the very beginning, in 1985, Luciano has always believed in the uniqueness and in the greatness of the Cannubi hill and in its potential by expressing it in a separate vinification. This wine pays tribute to the richness and elegance of an exceptional vineyard, in the heart of Barolo. Barolo Cannubi Boschis, as its successor ALESTE, is released after 10 years of aging in our cellars with the seal "Sibi et Paucis". It is worth the wait!

Le Vigne Barolo
As it once was

Le Vigne Barolo interprets the tradition of Langhe and of Barolo handing down the ancient and wise art of putting together grapes grown in various vineyards. We took this historic custom working with indigenous yeasts only and, keeping the grapes separated during the production-line work, rather than merging them right in the process of fermentation. The art of assemblage gives this Barolo a great potential for aging and is released after 10 years of maturation in our cellars with the seal "Sibi et Paucis".

 

Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d'Alba
A heroic interpretation of Nebbiolo

Luciano and his brother Luca have always appreciated the expression of the Nebbiolo vine grown in the most sandy soils of Roero. It took years of research and negotiations to bring together a perfect amphitheater, unique in itself, 20km from the cellar, in the heart of the historical appellation of the vine variety that was the former reference to determine the price of the Nebbiolo grape. Due to its morphology, we harvest the different exposures and altitudes of the vineyard at different times to always ensure maximum ripening, assembling the best grapes right before bottling. Just as it once was, we want to express in Valmaggiore the elegance and finesse of Nebbiolo, above all. Proud and convinced, what we look for in Roero is a Nebbiolo with elegance and finesse that can be considered incomparable. The aging potential is also important for the Valmaggiore. With the seal ""Sibi et Paucis", it is indeed released after 6 years of perfect aging within our cellars.
