Winery Manzone Giovanni
The Agricultural company Manzone Giovanni was founded in 1925 and it is located in Monforte D’Alba in core of the Langhe in Piedmont.
The particular position, the altitude and the extreme slope of the vines favor a low grapes production and they contribute to the creation of a very high quality wine.
In the production the fertilizers or insecticides are not used and there are used the sane and natural values of a good viticulture.
Every wine is filtrated and none of it is clarified.
Interview with producer
Which are the future projects for your cellar?
We have many projects but as always the main focus is on the quality of our wines; we always try to valorize our vines at our best. All this by mixing together the experience and the tradition with the innovation.
In your opinion, how much is important the improvement of the quality of the wines you produce?
It is essential. We are a little familiar company we do not produce a lot. For us, the most important thing is working at our best by always been focused on the quality and we do that by checking everything from the vineyard to the cellar.
If you have to convince a customer to buy your wine, what would you say to him?
To taste it. Every wine born from the love to this work, from the dedication we put every day and you can feel it.
Which is your favorite thing of your work, and which is the worst?
The positive sides are that you never get bored between the work in the vineyard, in the cellar and outside. Then, I love the possibility you have to interface with different people that sometimes travel a lot to come and visit the company. It is very exciting.
I think this is not a news but the worst thing is the bureaucracy.
If the Prime Minister would call you and he would ask you a wine for a very important dinner, which wine would you suggest him, and why?
Barolo Gramolere Riserva 2006, great year and great wine. The Barolo is an important wine and it reinforces the good friendship relations.

Go on with the passion of the quality research by respecting the territory.

For sure it is very interesting. By a simple click you can choose from a huge selection of wines, even the little producers who manage to arrive to everybody tables. On the contrary when you are in the cellar and you are tasting the wine, you have also the possibility to listen about the history, the work and the passion backgrounds.
Why have you decided to commit the sale of the wines to the online wine shop Uritalianwines?
Because we liked the project since the beginning, the selection of the wines is great, and because on uritalianwines you can find high quality wines from little and medium cellars.
