The Barolo wine was born in these lands and we dedicate love and meticulous work for the entire year in order to grow the best grapes.
We start during the winter by pruning the vines (“guyot” method) and then, in the following months of the year we proceed with other jobs such as cleaning and cutting the vines.
The wine-making starts in the Barolo winery with the pressing and the traditional fermentation of about thirty days.
The entire philosophy of our Barolo Castellero (is a cru between Barolo and Monforte d’Alba) is rigorously traditional, with a fairly long maceration followed by a long ageing process of about three years.
The wine ages for about 3 years in 30 or 50 hectolitre oak Slavonian barrels and then in the bottle for 12 months.
