Words from the winemaker: "The courage of being different was where we started to study the territory, understand its secrets and discover the hidden qualities of the two vineyards.
The origins of viticulture in the Valle dell Olmo estate date back to 1570, with vineyards that extended up to 530 hectares in the mid-1800s, produced wine that was sold in the surrounding towns.
The history of Castelluccimiano began with our origins. We studied and recovered the old bush vineyards from the old expansion, making them a unique example of biodiversity in the Valledolmo territory. Our production philosophy started while recovering this heritage. The wines produced from these grapes represent a rare example of the territory’s identity. The success of our wines is a definitive confirmation of the land’s value. 75 hectares of vineyards distributed on the cliffs and valleys of the mountains surrounding Valledolmo, representing the heritage of the local viticulture with a unique history. The old bush and more recent espalier vineyards are a rare example of the territory’s value.
The philosophy of environmental sustainability and organic agriculture ensure the protection of the vineyard’s biodiversity, including our agricultural gardens that are located between 700 and 1050 meters a.s.l., in our country districts Castellucci, Rovittello, Miano, Sprella, Contrasto, Cifiliana, Acqua del Corvo, e Sciarazzi in the Valledolmo area.
The old vineyards in bushes, about 40 years old, are still present in small plots, generally extending for 1 hectare each, contain fruit and olive trees as well, shaping the natural mosaic of the territory’s beauty.
Castelluccimiano was able to connect sustainable agriculture, experience and wine culture with the ability to imagine new stories that express, through the value of mountain viticulture, the authenticity of its territory."
