Notes

Anas-Cëtta is an autochthonous historical variety specifically from Novello commune. Since the first limited production run in 1994, working with tenacity and love for the land of the Langhe, Elvio Cogno winery has used the memories of old-timers in Novello to produce a wine for the youngsters of the third millennium. Mentioned in winemaking documents as early as the second half of the 19th century, this white wine of Mediterranean origin has a sapidity reminiscent of the great hot-clime varietals such as Vermentino (from which, according to some ampelographical studies, it might derive).
