Aleramo fell in love with Adelasia, daughter of Emperor Otto I of Saxony, but they could not stay together due to her noble origins. Otto, however, promised Aleramo the title of Marquis and donated him all the land he was able to ride over in three days. This was how he fixed the boundaries of the Monferrato, a region of important wines.
This legend inspired the Aleramica brand: three wines with noble origins, made from grapes grown on vineyards which were once the theatre of history, and featuring a reproduction of the Monferrato shield on the label: Ottone I Piemonte DOC Barbera, Adelasia Piemonte DOC Cortese, Aleramico Barbera d’Asti DOC.
