  • Winemaker Notes At the gates of Cormòns, in the hamlet of Angoris, the heart of the estate and the Villa Locatelli welcome visitors with an embracing row of cypress trees. The park, the symmetries of the vineyards, the colors of the autumn or the yellow enlightening rapeseed blossom in spring are all a delight to the eyes and soul.
