TERROIR VINEYARDS AND CELLAR The soil is the soul of the terroir but the brain of the plant is in its roots. When looking at a plant all we can see is the less important part – the soil is the soul of the terroir. The soil provides the energy and the climate the intensity but the brain of the plant is in its roots that are able to create a great fruit through what the soil offers them.
The combination of soil and Nebbiolo has made Castiglione Falletto the heart, not only geographically, of the production of Barolo. Here we have our farmhouse and cellar where since always we have been producing our wine in the respect of its original identity and allowing the terroir to give the wine its own personal touch. We want our Barolo to express the true soul of Nebbiolo without being influenced by more or less modern trends of schools of thought. Our Barolo simply wants to taste like Barolo from Castglione Falletto. Period!
It is the last grape varietal to be harvested when the grapes are nicely ripened and the tannins softer. Fermentation with maceration lasts 15 days in the barrels, and malo-lactic fermentation right after to take advantage of the temperature and the reduced environment of the recently completed fermentation. From the end of winter, the wine refines into 50-hectolitre oak vats.
Bottling takes place in the summer.
