Pertinace’s 15 growers have 170 acres of vineyards under cultivation, producing approximately 4,000 hectolitres of wine annually. Most of the group’s vineyards are located near the village of Treiso, one of the main communes in the Barbaresco D.O.C. zone. Treiso is known for its high slopes with soil that is primarily calcareous marl. Pertinace has 3 Vineyard Crus: Marcarini, Nervo and Castellizzano.
Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.
But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.
Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
