Durante questa esperienza, dopo la visita della nostra cantina, avrete la possibilità di conoscere e confrontare i due più importanti vitigni autoctoni a bacca rossa del Piemonte: Nebbiolo e Barbera.

Sarà curioso vedere come dallo stesso terreno, stesso vigneto, stessa esposizione e stessa uva, queste due Barbere si distinguano tra loro.

Per l'uva Nebbiolo, sentirete differenze di terreno e di gusto tra due importanti Cru di Monforte d'Alba. Degusterete infatti il Langhe Nebbiolo DOC proveniente dal Cru Gramolere e Barolo Castelletto DOCG proveniente dal Cru Castelletto.
Per l'uva Barbera, avrete la possibilità di degustare due Barbere provenienti dal CRU Bricco di Nizza in Nizza Monferrato in due diverse declinazioni. Degusterete infatti la Barbera d'Asti DOCG proveniente da vigneti di 50 anni e affinata solo in acciaio e il Nizza DOCG, la denominazione più importante per la Barbera d'Asti DOCG, proveniente da vigne vecchie di 80 anni e affinata in tonneaux.

About the host

Castello di Perno dominates the homonymous village, a hamlet of Monforte d'Alba since 1932. The Castello was built during the medieval period by one of the most important Barolo families, the Falletti family, as defensive castle, located on one of the highest hills of this land, giving it a wonderful and strategical view of the Langhe landscape. Between the17th and 18th century, the Castello was significantly transformed into a residential building.
In the late 70s the Castello was bought by one of the most important Italian publishers: Giulio Einaudi, founder of the Italian publishing home Einaudi. The Castello became the headquarters of this publishing house and a working residence for many influent and famous Italian writers, who made the history of the Italian literature in that period. Primo Levi is one of the most known writers whom the small sqaure under the castle walls was recently dedicated to.
Since 2012, the Castello has been owned by Gregorio Gitti, lawyer and professor of Civil Law at the University of Milan. The Gitti family’s project from the beginning had two main purposes:
The first one has been to renovate the Castello di Perno and take back to light its original beauty and history making it a home for a Cultural Association of Contemporary Art. The first floor is an exceptional exhibition space for artists and a unique setting for living a full experience surrounded by different types of art.
The second aim of the family has been to establish a new winery
