Tenuta Cucco is a Piedmontese winery located in Serralunga d’Alba, at the roots of the renowned XIV century castle that dominates the whole Langhe area. Its name refers to the peack, called "cucco", which in local dialect indicates the top of the hill where there is the oldest vineyard, Vigna Cucco, inside Cerrati Cru.
In the past years Tenuta Cucco has been owned by the Stroppiana family which in their turn acquired the estate in 1966 from the Cappellano family and built the first cellar of the estate. In January 2015 it was acquired by the Rossi Cairo family, owners of La Raia, biodynamic estate in Novi Ligure for over 15 years, where they produce Gavi DOCG and Piemonte Barbera DOC Demeter certified.
Tenuta Cucco, with its crus Cerrati and Vigna Cucco, is a new section of the biological-biodynamic project that thrills the Rossi Cairo family, having seen the organic method also extended to Tenuta Cucco vineyards and cellar. To date, the Piedmontese producer has about 13 hectares of vineyards, where also Dolcetto d'Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo, Langhe Chardonnay and Barbera d'Alba are grown in addition to the famous Nebbiolo for Barolo wines.
