Vigna Mandorlo, or Almond Vineyard, is a suggestive plot of land cultivated with Nebbiolo, located in the subarea of Scarrone in the Commune of Castiglione Falletto. Our vineyard begins at the foot of the castle and extends, in three adjoining “plots of land”, over more than three hectares.
The name of this vineyard stems from the almond plant, which in this location matures its fruit nicely thanks to the special microclimate.
The vineyard has a south exposure, with slopes of between 25 and 35% and lies at an altitude between 300 and 380 metres above sea level.
The clayey-calcareous soil is rich in microelements; geologically the land has a marine origin dating back to the inferior Miocene (Oligocene epoch), with grey-blue marlstone of the elvezian epoch, alternated with layers of sandstone making it particularly suited to producing great Barolo wines.
