Nizza Bric del Marchese is the result of decades of experience working with the barbera variety. The production area is located in the municipality of Nizza Monferrato, very close to the border with Vinchio: it’s the geographical fulcrum of the appelation. Produced in a very limited amount of bottles, this Nizza accurately interprets the typicity of this specific area.
