i nostri vini:
Massimo and Roberto Damonte
A beautiful estate on the hills outside the ancient town of Canale, run by brothers Massimo and Roberto Damonte and their wives Federica and Patrizia, Malvira began production under their father in the 1950s.  Malvira was one of the first vineyards in Piemonte to recognize the importance of Arneis by creating special Crus for their Arneis vines, identifying and designating the hillsides providing the best growing conditions for this indigenous varietal. It shows in the glass from the fragrant aromas wafting upward to the rich mouth feel and complex flavors that hit the palate.

The Nebbiolo wines produced by Malvira, especially the Superiore, have garnered high praise in the press both in Italy and the US. Basically Barolos from the wrong side of the Tanero River they have a grace and elegance not always found in their big brothers on the “right” bank.

Malvira’s wine labels, using symbols displaying a wheel from the tarot deck, stay close to the tradition that began with the Conti Roero family coat of arms.
