Bansella - Costamiole
Bansella Nizza DOCG and Costamiòle Nizza DOCG Riserve are both produced from the vineyards in the Nizza area, about 19 kilometers from the city of Asti. Approximately 10 hectares (25 acres) of vineyards are planted to Barbera in this small enclave that enjoys south/southwest exposure. This area received DOCG status recently with the 2014 harvest, yet has been long known for its excellent Barberas. This subzone represents Barbera the same way that Barolo represents Nebbiolo.
