Renzo Castella's wines combine elite terroir and remarkable winemaking skill with an overtly unpretentious attitude. The wines' complexity and depth are self evident, but there is nothing heavy handed or overwraught. The village of Diano is one of the only DOCG (Grand Cru-equivalent) growing sites for the Dolcetto Grape in all of Italy. The Castella family vineyards hug the borderline between Diano and Serralunga, Barolo (one of the most prestigious growing villages in Italy, period!). The steep hillsides and limestone-rich soils enjoying an ancient reputation for producing dark fruited, layered, and complex wines perfectly suited for the table, or extended aging in the cellar. Through organic farming practices and traditional winemaking technique passed down through generations of the same family, their wines express the soil, climate and history of Piedmont. The resulting wines are exceedingly expressive, detailed in aroma, and elegant. Vines have been grown in the family since the early 1900s. No herbicides or pesticides.
