This estate was born in 1930 with Domenico Taliano, but its roots are deeper. In fact Domenico belongs to a family of farmers dedicated to works in vineyards and fields, known in Montà with the nickname of "Re Cit" that in piedmontese dialect means "Little Kings". In that period all the vineyards were close to Montà, in zones called Bossola, Rolandi, Benna. In the mid-seventies, the estate grows again towards Langhe by means of Domenico's son, Michele. He bought the vineyards and a farmhouse at the locality named Montersino, close to San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, a small fraction of the capital of Langhe, Alba, and between the villages of Treiso and Barbaresco.
Twenty years later, in the mid-nineties, two of the four Michele's sons, Alberto at first and, after some formative work experiences outside the farm, Ezio, began to renovate the farm. Their work was addressed to the improvement of the methodologies of the grape production and the refinement of the wines. Ezio is also the oenologist of the farm.
