Description

Details of wine

Castelletto is a vast area that winds between Monforte d'Alba and the frazione of Perno along the confines of Serralunga d'Alba. Here, we cultivate about four hectares of vineyards that lay in a southeast position. Beginning with the 1996 vintage, we were the first producers to use this name on the label, and the first with its official recognition. The prevalent amount of sandstone and the well-ventilated microclimate create a tannic Barolo that is very fresh, with balsamic, mint, and eucalyptus notes.

To understand our history, we must return to the beginning of the 1900s in the village of Ciotto near La Morra. In this cluster of houses, the Veglio family has been dedicated to working the land for generations. To be a farmer in the Langhe meant bending over the vines, cultivating orchards and gardens, raising livestock, and inventing new ways of getting by every day. It was a difficult life. Angelo Veglio, born in 1928, would pass the winters by visiting the farmhouses as a “masacrin,” or a sort of butcher on house call, particularly for the preparation of salami. During the summer, after working in the fields he would travel to the market in Canale, where he sold the few peaches his orchards produced. Angelo had a dream: leave the life of a sharecropper and working in agriculture to dedicate himself to making wine; and purchase vineyards and bottle wine under his name, using native Langhe grapes—above all, nebbiolo, in which he had the foresight to recognize quality and potential. Today, our winery produces 80 thousand bottles from about 14 hectares of vineyards distributed throughout La Morra and Monforte d’Alba. We believe in a balanced wine, respectful of the territory and the characteristics of its land of origins, fruit of an attentive work in the vineyard and just as much care taken in the cellars. We make four important cru (officially known as Menzioni Geografiche Aggiuntive) of Barolo: Arborina, Gattera, Rocche dell’Annunziata, and Castelletto. In addition to Barolo, we vinify other great reds of the Langhe: Langhe Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto d’Alba.
