First vintage: 2019
This is the most important expression of our Barberas.
Castellinaldo, recently claimed as a Barbera SOTTOZONE, is the only Barbera d’Alba to bear a village name.
We use our best barberas for this wine, these are vinified in steel, and the resulting wine is aged for 24 months in tonneaux, bottled and left to rest for at least 12 months before being sold.
