Castiglione Falletto: our home, the house of wine

cantine-castiglione-falletto

The historical roots of Castiglione Falletto date back to Roman times, and it is easy to understand the strategic reasons behind it: it stands on a 350-meter-high hill and dominates the territory in every direction. But it was in the Middle Ages, under the control of the Marquises of Saluzzo and specifically of the Falletto family, that the construction of an actual quadrangular fortress characterized its destiny. Castiglione Falletto was ruled by feudal lords first, then France, and finally the Savoy House until the Unification of Italy

Our old Scarrone vineyard is located at the base of the castle, providing a privileged view of Serralunga. Right here, Barbera bunches shine in September, when the veraison takes over. A brightness that persists on the palate when the fruit turns into wine.
