The son of a teacher from the hamlet of Albesani – close to the village of Neive – young and tireless Francesco Versio graduated in 2009 from Turin University, specialising in viticulture and viniculture. He worked briefly at the quality-focused co-operative Terre del Barolo before joining Bruno Giacosa, where he was made winemaker in June 2011. In 2013 he made the first vintage of Barolo bottled under his name – from his family’s tiny property in Neive in Barbaresco. They have two small plots of old vines: one in the vineyards of San Cristoforo, planted in 1969; the other, Currà, even older, lies below San Cristoforo. Both face southwest and overlook the village of Barbaresco. Francesco makes tiny quantities of his wines in his family’s garage, with just one stainless steel tank and large Stockinger botte, made very traditionally.
