About

Product Description:

"We are engaged to look for this vineyard and we found it in our town and the production began with the harvest 2012. Called Contadin (pronounced in Piemontese dialect “Cuntadin”) in honor to our roots and in the label the dry figure of Simone Castella (father of Claudia), important support in the research of this vineyard. The Contadin is a traditional Barolo fermentated in steeltanks using an ancient method called “a cappello sommerso” and it is refined in oak barrels of Slavonia of 20 hl for 24 months, then it is matured in bottle for about 8 months. This wine is perfect with roast, boiled meats, braised, wildmeat and hard cheeses of medium and long aging. Best served at 18°/20° C. in large glasses to appreciate its complexity and elegance."
