Ferdinando PrincipianoPiemonte, Italy
Ferdinando Principiano is based on the southern fringe of the Barolo zone, and benefits from the biodiversity of the Alta Langhe wilderness that lies beyond the dense planting of Nebbiolo vineyards.
This helps in maintaining balance in the vineyard. In 2003 he moved away from conventional production and since then he’s been rewarded by the purity and drinkability of his wines. He uses wild yeast fermentation and organic methods, as well as minimising the sulphur used.
