Castiglione Falletto

 

Though small in terms of land area, Castiglione Falletto contains many excellent vineyards. Soils and terrain are varied in this transitional zone between the finesse of Barolo and La Morra and the power of Serralunga and Monforte. Castiglione's top wines are said to posess elements of both.

 

The vineyards of Castiglione Falletto

Bricco Boschis


A large vineyard for Barolo of which about half is planted to Nebbiolo for Barolo while the rest is planted to other varieries. The soils are mostly helvetian over a compact blue-white calcareous marl. Most of the vineyard is owned by Cavallotto, who makes the only single cru wines from here.

23 ha / 57 acres

 

Bricco Rocche



Codana



Fiasco


Fiasco faces south to southwest with excellent hillside exposure. The soils are the same Sant'Agata marls found in Barolo and La Morra. Such was the vineyard's quality that in 1978 Enrico Scavino convinced his father to vinify it separately, resulting in Fiasco's debut as a single vineyard bottling.

5.7 ha / 14 acres

 

Monprivato


An excellent and historically recognized cru, Monprivato's wines exhibit the combination of power, elegance and fine aromatics which represents Castiglione at its best. Already recognized in records dating back to 1666, it also received a first class designation from Renato Ratti in his Barolo map. Aspect is to the southwest, with blue-gray marl soils high in active calcium and lime.

6 ha / 14.8 acres

 

Montanello



Parussi



Pernanno



Rivera



Rocche di Castiglione



Vignolo


Vignolo faces southwest at the end of the ridge that begins at Monprivato. Soils are a mix of tortonian and helvetian. Cavallotto makes the only single cru wine from here, with Paolo Scavino using the wine from their small plot here in their Barolo blend.
