Unlike the north side of San Cristoforo hill – divided into numerous crus – the south side is occupied exclusively by Basarin. This majestic and beautiful slope stretches from Borgata Zocco to Tre Stelle, passing through the historical centre (above Borgata Moretta, which is where our winery is located) and then through Gianmatè higher up. Despite the morphology of the cru suggesting otherwise, the Barbaresco and Barbera wines grown in the Basarin cru, especially in the central area, are distinguished mainly by their linearity and balance which, in the best cases, are accompanied with a pleasant minerality.
