As we showed up without an appointment at Cavalier Bartolomeo’s cellar door in Italy he still smiling invited us for a taste. The winery is located in the hearth of Barolo, in the medival town of Castiglione Falletto, and in the small village called Garbelletta. It was founded in 1924 by Cavalier Bartolomeo’s grandfather. He had learned from his father how to make wine from estate grown grapes. Since then tree generations went by, and most of the vines have been replaced leaving only Nebbiolo vines the varietal for the famous Barolo.
“The wine cellar has been modernized. We now have better possibilities to control the alcoholic fermentation and we have also introduced aging in barriques.”
