There was a time when “Monte Acuto” was a mysterious-looking fortress, a kind of atoll suspended over the sea, all around the outlines of the hills which the pines lined, making it look like crests of prehistoric beasts. There was a time when “Monte Acuto” was surrounded by extensive sea, with only a little emerged land, where streams were disruptive and where there were animals of all kinds. There was a time when the waters receded, the land rose up, and the landscapes came into being. Dug out by the waters, eroded by the wind, moulded out of nothing, that’s how the rich and generous territory of the Roero vineyards appeared. There was a time that Monte Acuto watched over this territory, it dominated it, and became the home of a mysterious-looking fortress; it gave it its name, protected it from attacks and made it important. There was a time when the emperors were asking it for asylum and it accepted, owners changed, and it loved them and protected them. The “Monte Acuto” becomes a grappa lending it its name too. It is the selection of the best grape pomace of this territory, of its own territory, which shapes the grappa. A tribute which the Berta family pays to the generous and welcoming Roero area. The result: a valuable distillate.
