Compared to their 2.5ha Monforte vineyard Santo Stefano di Perno, this Castiglione Falletto gem is more ‘campo sportivo’ than vineyard, given its size at 6.20ha. It was cropped at 30hl/ha in 2006 giving a beautifully ethereal, silflike wine that gives you ‘harmony’ in buckets. Selected yeast & stainless-steel vinifcation (since the late ‘90s) has surely helped frame the bright, detailed strawberry-like fruit, with its brilliant racy quality & calcareous finesse. Such lines!(tasted before September 2010’s bottling).
