Castello di Verduno 2016 Barolo, Piedmont, Italy 

Farming: Practicing organic

Winemaker/Chef du Cave: Mario Andrion 

Castello di Verduno is the result of a marriage between Franco Bianco of Barbaresco and Gabriella Burlotto of Verduno. They petitioned and won the ability to make both Barolo and Barbaresco under one name, Castello di Verduno. They have two cantinas for winemaking, one is each zone, then all the wines are cellared at the castle in Verduno. They have fantastic sites in both Barolo (Monvigliero and Massara) and Barbaresco (Rabaja and Faset) plus they make a fantastic quirky light red wine from Verduno’s native grape Pelaverga Piccolo! 

Varieties:  Nebbiolo

Terroir / Soil: Fruit for this wine come from Verduno, with  vines planted in 1988 and 1992. The hill faces southeast at 280m elevation in soil locally known as "Marne di Sant’Agata," which is chalky clay with sand and limstone. Verduno is a lesser known village of Barolo and is located in the western part of the Barolo zone near La Morra.

Vinification/Oak Usage:  35 days maceration, controlled low temperature fermentation in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. 32 months in large Slavonian botti, 6 months in bottle, not fined or filtered. Only 3,000 bottles produced.
