Anna Maria Abbona is family farm with the 5th generation carrying on the tradition. The vineyards grow at 490 to 570 meters above sea level and, with the Langhe’s usual good weather, the 11 hectares yield grapes of high quality, rich of aroma and full of flavor.
They have recently added Reisling and the local grape Nascetta to their traditional Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo. The NYTimes raves; “the 2010 Dolcetto di Dogliani from Anna Maria Abbona, showed a different style, so fresh and lively that it seemed to want to leap out of the glass, yet also well balanced”.
