Ugo Lequio founded the eponymous winery in 1980 with the ambition of making fine Piedmont wines. Its terroir, located in particular on the hills of the Neive-Borgonovo village, lead to the production of wines that are unanimously renowned for their elegance and broad aromatic range.
This 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo by Ugo Lequio is made from the Castellizzano vineyard in the Treiso area. Planted in 2000, this northwest facing terroir is located at an altitude of 400 metres.
