Company Info

Castiglione Falletto, located in the very heart of the Barolo appellation to the south of the city of Alba, is little townships of the DOCG, one of the smaller subzones of the entire production area of Barolo wine.
However a large part of the vineyard surface is planted with the great Nebbiolo grape and here it gives very impressive results. In fact the combination of its structure, body, power and refinement are the unmistakable signs of a great wine.

La Morra to the west may show more fragrance and finesse and Serralunga to the east more power and concentration, but, as the Latin poet Horace noted some two thousand years ago, moderation is a prime virtue and excesses are always to be avoided.

Montanello Accommodation

The Tenuta Montanello offers two different forms of accommodation: holiday flats and bedrooms.
It is situated in the small medieval town of Castiglione Falletto in the heart of the Langhe. Once a 19th century farmhouse, this property has been recently renovated and furnished with taste and care.
It stands on top of a peaceful hill which gives onto a breathtaking view of vineyards and nature; cordiality and privacy are the watchwords on this estate.
The entire property is surrounded by grounds where guests can stroll and where the abundant breakfast is served in summer. The position is an ideal departure point for excursions on foot or by car and, in the near vicinity, it is possible to visit medieval castles, hunt for truffles or taste the wines produced on the farm itself.


The spacious bedrooms all have private bathrooms and air conditioning. The bedroom on the ground floor is also suitable for the disabled.
Holiday flats
The fully equipped and comfortable flats all have modern kitchens with all the necessary facilities.

Montanello Wines

Tenuta Montanello was purchased in 1864 by Bartolomeo Racca and for many years it was the initial headquarters of the cooperative winery of the township, the first of its sort in the zone.
The property is strategically located in a perfect spot, high on a hill overlooking the road which joins Alba to Barolo and then Monforte d’Alba; the vineyards themselves, with a perfect southwestern exposure, the finest of all for the Nebbiolo grape, are just to the north of such famous crus as Bricco Boschis, Vignolo, Monprivato, and Villero.
If outstanding Barolo cannot be produced from these grapes, then it cannot be produced anywhere.
Montanello is currently run by Alberto Racca, heir of the 19th century founder.
He has voluntarily chosen to bottle only a part of the production – clearly the finest part – from their 27 acres of vineyards.
The line is composed of various wines: the Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d'Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo, and - naturally - the Barolo Montanello which is an official cru of the Barolo denomination.
