Even today, the property is entirely family run. Giovanni Cordero di Montezemolo and his children Elena and Alberto are the protagonists of this millennium. The historic single body, rare for the area, 28 hectares of vineyards covers all sides of the hill and has always grown with the different local varieties, selected and implanted differently depending on sun exposure, soil type and altitude.
