ABOUT THE PRODUCER
From the Distributor:
Castello di Stefanago Rosso comes from clay-based soils, the grapes are hand-harvested from three plots (Uva Rara – 1.55ha, Croatina – 2.11ha, and Barbera – 1.8ha) and are selected 1 month before harvest. Each varietal is harvested and vineyard sorted separately: Uva Rara on September 20th, Barbera on October 9th and Croatina on October 18th. The grapes spend 10 days macerating in steel tanks with ambient yeasts followed by fermentation that takes place over 20 days in temperature-controlled steel tanks. Aged for five months in steel tanks; unfiltered.
Castello di Stefanago is the result of generations of grapes: The Baruffaldis have strived to maintain respect for the terroir as well as the earth in their winemaking. The winery is located in Lombardy in the Oltrepo Pavese hills between 320 and 470 meters above sea level. The cellars are in the castle which still remains from the fourteenth century in the center of the property, around which there are about eighteen hectares of vines and 135 hectares of meadows, forests, orchards, and arable land. Antonio and Giacomo Baruffaldi have long followed organic farming, striving to achieve healthy, natural grapes, which are harvested at the appropriate level of maturity and reflect the terroir on which they are grown. In the cellar, the Baruffaldis keep in mind the natural inclinations of each must, of the natural evolution of each cuvé, using barrels of various woods and sizes. The vineyard currently produces Riesling Renano, Pinot Grigio, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Croatina (Bonarda), Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Uva Rara, and Pinot Nero.
