SCARRONE FARM IN CASTIGLIONE FALLETTO

Our farmhouse is in the middle of the vineyards of the cru Scarrone in Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of the DOCG Barolo area. Here, we rebuilt in 1981 the old farmhouse, the only one in the cru Scarrone, and dedicated its cellars to the production and refining of our Barolo wines, with the majestic oak vats where the fermentation takes place. The grape come from our five hectares vineyard surrounding the farmhouse. The vines are supported in their growth by the orientation that receives the morning sun, supporting a perfect maturation even in the warmest years.
The long maceration of pure Nebbiolo is an example of respect for the tradition and allows to obtain remarkably full-bodied and persistent wines.

WINEMAKING

Nicely ripened grapes fermented in large 53 hl wooden vats, specifically built from oak trees from the Fontainebleau forests. Long maceration and pump-over during the first period followed by manual punching down and some delestage of 18 hours. After fermentation is over the wine is poured into stainless steel tank where it rests for 48 hours to let the gross lees deposit before returning in wooden vats where it is aged for 28 months.

WINE

Ample and complex wine, very elegant with its distinct garnet colour and its scents of tobacco, rose and violet that continue to refine further over time. Enveloping palate with sweet tannins, typical of the Castiglione cru, and in particular that from Scarrone.
