Full day tour from Milan city to Monferrato Asti.
Their ancient walls tell us of the history and traditions of the true Monferrato. The first documents that testify to its existence go back to the Napoleonic period. Then, as now, it was a place dedicated to the cultivation of the most prised vineyards of the area.
And like a good wine preserves its secrets in time, to then donate it to us, the farmhouse does the same and presents us its ancient splendours, also thanks to a consistent restoration work executed with the passion by a craftsman.
Wines, cellar, rooms and lounges: nothing is left to chance. Every detail is cared for while respecting the art of hospitality and good living, to give the visitor a unique and unforgettable experience.
The Vineyards: The earth guards its treasure which is more precious that those of Asti. A wealth the T.M.E. displays with the luxuriance of its cultivations, which extend up to the towns of Altavilla, Viarigi and Casorzo.
The Freisa, with its scent of strawberries and wild berries is blended in small percentages with the Grignolino, giving it softness and fruit.
The Ruché, a very rare varietal that can be grown only in a restricted areal around Montemagno, is distinguished by its echo of violet to the nose, elegant and velvety to the palate.
The Barbera, a classic Piedmont varietal, renowned for its potency and longevity and for the richness of red fruit, particularly cherry, achieves the best expression of it delicacy and power, in the clayey and lime-rich soil of Piedmont. It is produced in two versions: one that is more ready with maturing in steel vats, rich in fruit and favours, the other is enriched with spicy tones and vanilla after a year long wooden vat maturing.
The Malvasia of Casorzo, a rare varietal that is found only in the Municipality of Casorzo, is an aromatic and unique grape, of its genre that is vinified when sweet, in the best vintages and even in passitos. The eye gets lost following the rows of some of the most ancient and famous grapes of Piedmont:
The Grignolino, an ancient varietal of the Monferrato, is characterised by its soft, captivating colour and its floral notes (dry rose) and pomegranate accents;
Red wines. Monferrato is the land of excellence for red wines, that only here have a natural expression of strength and equilibrium. The T.M.E. currently offers all the most important red wines of Monferrato. The organisation of the vineyard and cellar is aimed at expressing the best of the varieties, respecting the biological rhythms of maturation of each and making the wine taking care to respect the distinctive characteristics of each variety.
White wine. The best white wines recognize themselves for the delicacy of the fragrances and for the ageability. The Montemagno farm gives us these masterpieces thanks to the ideal climate of Monferrato and the unique characteristics of its lands.
Sweet wines. It is impossible that such a generous a land could not have reserved for us a welcome surprise: this is the case of the Malvasia of Casorzo grapes, a native variety only present in the town of Casorzo which gives rise to a sweet aromatic wine with great personality, unique because these grapes are only found here.
