Two steps away from Neive and from our Winery, the picturesque village of Barbaresco holds the medieval tower that soars as a beacon on the Langhe hills.
It is the symbol of Barbaresco and from its top you can enjoy a marvellous view over the neighboring villages as far as Cherasco on one side and Asti on the other side, the Tanaro river and Alba, with the superb amphitheatre of the Alps on the horizon. In the medieval era Barbaresco was located in a border position and it was contended by the communes of Alba and Asti. It passed definitely under the control of Alba in the XIII century
The tower is the biggest of Piedmont and was built in the late XI Century. However, its origin is still partially unknown. It belonged to a complex system of fortifications, heritage of the Dukedom of Monferrato.
Today it is possible to get on the top of the monument with a modern lift. From there, you can enjoy the same wonderful panorama that cheered up the eyes of who defended our precious lands by the Saracens.
