Wine, Black and White Truffles, Piedmontese cattle: the pearls of Ronzano.
There are farms that tie their name to the history of a specific area, thanks to their dedication to the land and their passion for tradition. The Ronzano family is all of this: genuine, professional, cohesive, and protagonist of those hills that characterise the area of Costigliole d’Asti. The pages of history of the farm describe Bricco Lu situated in the Cioccaro valley, a territory that has been cultivated and respected by the founder, Renato Ronzano, since the 1940s, producing over the years, quality wines which are the result of the meticulous work carried out in both the vineyard and the cellar. Thanks to the help of his son Giovanni, the wine in bulk and in bottles is able to share the story of the Langa Astigiana region with its customers. A world that also Marco (wine-making expert), Paola and Chiara, the son and daughters of Giovanni, are able to continue: the respect for the grapes as the fruit of the land, the link with tradition and the pursuit of sound quality are very clear in their work. The Ronzano farm continues to work in the name of the family bond that has always characterised this company.
THE VINEYARDS: RESPECT. “Respect”, a word that the Ronzano farm are very familiar with and is reflected in the fact that the vineyards have always been owned by the family. These vineyards develop along the hill next to the winery in Costigliole d’Asti where mostly Barbera wine grape, symbol of the Province of Asti, is cultivated. There are also hectares in the Municipality of Neive where Moscato and Nebbiolo wine grape are grown. Completing the production are Dolcetto, Bonarda, Grignolino and Cortese.
PIEDMONTESE CATTLE: QUALITY MEAT. Over the years, Giovanni Ronzano’s passion for breeding has led the Ronzano farm to offer Coalvi certified Piedmontese cattle. A quality meat obtained from cattle that grow in the area, for those who wish to consume healthy and nutritious food. Three hundred head of cattle, a butcher’s shop open to the public and a lot of sacrifice. This too means being close to the Asti Langa territory.
THE WHITE TRUFFLE: A PRECIOUS FRUIT. Ronzano, a historical name of the fascinating world of truffles that can be defined as the precious fruit of the land. The white truffle of Alba has always been present in the family, that has been able to promote it as part of the territory and as a witness of the Langa tradition. The truffle closes the circle of life of the Ronzano family which, among its wine cultivation, cattle breeding and Magnatum Pico, has always respected the land and its traditions.
