The Castello di Perno sits high above the village of the same name in the heart of the Piedmont vineyards. The origins of the estate date back to the Middle Ages. However, the Castello is not just old walls; it is a piece of Italian cultural history. Until the 1990s, it served as the headquarters of the Giulio Einaudi publishing house. After years of decline, the castle, along with some vineyards, was purchased by Gregorio Gitti, a Milanese law professor and wine lover. In 2014, the first wine was produced. It has since expanded to 12 hectares, all cultivated using organic methods and distributed across some of the best terroirs in Piedmont. The goal is to create classic wines characterized by balance and lightness—not necessarily typical of Piedmont.

Grapes variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Vinification: Destemming, 48 hours cold maceration and spontaneous fermentation with maceration of 30 days at controlled temperature. Aged 24 month in Austrian oak casks of 50 Hl. Before bottling, the wine does a little passage in concrete and then refines at least 12 months in bottle.

Degustation notes: Ruby red with garnet reflections. On the nose notes of small red fruits, violets, hints of vanilla and cocoa. Full-bodied on the palate, with velvety tannins, good acidity and a lingering finish.

Food pairing: aged cheeses and red meats, especially stews.

Alcohol content: 14.5 % vol.

Serving temperature: 16°-18°C

Awards: Wine Enthusiast: 92/100, Decanter 91/100.
