Tenuta La Tenaglia: Monferrato Winery

Tenuta Tenaglia is a Monferrato Winery located at the foot of the Sacro Monte di Crea, in the municipality of Serralunga di Crea which also is part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.

This small town’s specific terroir is characterized by a particular geological conformation of marine origin. The soil has a clayey top layer that sits on sedimented underlying layers of ancient marls, which give our vineyards an advantageous mineral wealth, allowing our wines to achieve aromatic and olfactory results of great refinement and elegance. Located at 450 m. above sea level, our vineyards look like a suggestive amphitheater that envelop the ancient seventeenth-century estate.

Our Method

The specific terroir of our small commune is characterised by a particular geological conformation of marine origin. The soil has an upper clayey layer that insists on sedimented layers of ancient marls below, which confer an advantageous mineral richness to our vineyards, allowing the wines to achieve aromatic and olfactory results of considerable refinement and elegance. The unusual altitude at which our vineyards are located, much higher than the average for the Monferrato hills, allows our grapes to grow in a favourable micro-climate, far from the fog and winter frosts that are usually concentrated in the valleys. The particular geological conformation completes the picture of our terroir, consecrating it as a vocation for wine-making excellence.
