Castello di Verduno 2018 'Rabaja' Brbaresco, 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!

Vinification/Oak Usage: Hand-harvested around in the first or second week of October. Fermented in oak vats for 30 days.
