Rocche di Castiglione is probably the most prestigious cru of Castiglione Falletto. A narrow piece of land which develops in length starting just above the historical center of Castiglione Falletto village. This cru is on a steep slope where the soil is quite poor and draining. One of the first vineyard of our property to bud in the spring.

The prof. Vignolo Lutati in 1930 on his essay Sulla delimitazione delle zone e dei vini tipici was writing about the Barolo from this vineyard as “little less alcoholic but with a distinct scent which makes it highly valuable even in younger age”.
