More about the Producer:
Simone Scaletta is one of the new rising stars amongst the new winemakers in the Langhe. His passion for wine and for the Langhe speaks for itself. This same passion led him to give up his day job in Turin and without any family holdings in Barolo, he set out to build a magnificent cantina in the heart of Monforte d’Alba. In an area with no real estate, he was able to obtain vineyards in famous Crus that had nonavailable. As far as his wine-making goes, he is someone who uses cutting-edge techniques in a region known for tradition and blends them with a type of viticulture philosophy that is extra careful about the soil quality and the area’s biodiversity.
