    Cantine Cattabo

    Le origini

    Le Cantine Catabbo nascono da una fortuita intuizione di Vincenzo, che all’epoca, negli anni ’90, era impegnato nel commercio all’ingrosso di cereali e granaglie; mestiere che, da sempre, lo portava a viaggiare molto, sia in Italia che all’Estero, e a misurarsi con realtà molto diverse dalla propria.
    Acquistati i primi terreni, posizionati sui pendii di San Martino in Pensilis, si accorse subito che essi si presentavano poco adatti alla coltivazione delle granaglie, soprattutto a causa della tante pietre…(da qui il nome di Contrada Petriera data all’estensione su cui si erge la prima delle aziende Catabbo).In un giorno come tanti, si trovò a colloquiare con un anziano contadino, il quale custodiva gelosamente qualche piantina del raro vitigno Tintilia.
    Era il 1997 quando per gioco, ne impianto 1/2 ettaro in Contrada Petriera!

    L’azienda

    Durante uno dei suoi viaggi, questa volta in Francia, spinto da una forte curiosità, si recò a visitare Bordeaux prima e la Borgogna poi, scoprendo modi di concepire il vino molto diversi tra loro; ma una cosa i due mondi francesi avevano in comune: l’estrema cura dei vigneti, delle vere e proprie forme d’arte!
    Da quì l’illuminazione: “Fare del buon vino partendo dalle vigne!
    Nascono così le Cantine Catabbo: da un incontro fortuito, quello con un contadino, dalla “riscoperta” di un vitigno sconparso, la Tintilia, e da un viaggio in Francia, che chiarì le idee sul suo futuro a Vincenzo!

    Una storia di famiglia

    Nel 2004, grazie anche alla predisposizione dei suoi tre figli Sara, Carla e Pasquale, decide di dare una svolta all’azienda, creando una moderna cantina per la vinificazione delle proprie uve, curando particolarmente la valorizzazione della qualità dei vini prodotti; in questo progetto riveste un ruolo prioritario la riscoperta e la vinificazione della varietà autoctona “Tintilia”.

    Rivolti al futuro

    Grazie alla cura dei vigneti, siti su terreni particolarmente dotati e all’utilizzo di moderne tecniche di vinificazione, oggi l’azienda vanta numerosi riconoscimenti sui mercati nazionali ed esteri.

    La Cantina

    Ideata con nuove tecnologie per l’ottenimento di grandi vini di qualità:
    – ambienti interamente condizionati
    – macchine enologiche di ultima generazione
    – presse soffici per una delicata estrazione
    – vinificatori di moderna invenzione per ottenere il meglio dalle vinacce
    – barriques di pregiato rovere francese per svelare dolci note aromatiche
  • La colombera

    La colombera

    La Colombera

    La Colombera is located in the small village of Vho, five kilometers from Tortona, and is run by Elisa Semino and her father, Piercarlo. The first vineyards were planted in the 1950s by Elisa’s grandfather, Renato. Their overwhelming passion for the craft of winemaking ensures the cultivation of grapes of the utmost quality, and the grapes from each vineyard are vinified separately. Piercarlo refined his cellar technique over the years through experience and valuable advice. Selling wine solely to local Italians who came to Cascina Colombera thanks to word of mouth, the company grew in 1997 and now encompasses 14 acres of vineyards. 1998 was a watershed year for La Colombera: Piercarlo cultivated a vineyard of Barbera Brusa, creating the first label of ‘Elisa’ and father and daughter began planting Timorasso grapes at different points in their land, which has now grown to five vineyards of Timorasso.

    A MISSION CALLED TIMORASSO

    Timorasso is a local white grapes vine, cultivated in the Tortonian territory since the Middle Ages. Already mentioned in the first agrarian encyclopedia of the XIV century, this wine confirms its tendencies and, over the centuries, becomes the most important Piedmontese white vine. After World War II its production is gradually abandoned, as other more vigorous and resistant grapes are preferred. In the ’90s Piercarlo and Elisa, together with some young winemakers of the Colli Tortonesi, are among the first 5 wineries to believe in the rediscovery of Timorasso. In their 20 hectares of La Colombera, they locate the grounds destined to exalt the characteristics of this vine : an alternation of clayey sandstone and marn layers, limestone and tuff spots, the right altitude to give the wine a marked minerality and a defined quality, which improve in ageing. Piercarlo and Elisa plant 5 different types of vineyards, by using a mass selection of Timorasso’s vines. After many years of research and of sensory analysis, they succeed in getting a complete ampelographic and aromatic profile as well as a greater complexity in the glass. As a result, they select the Montino Cru, the most awarded wine of La Colombera.
    When young, the Timorasso is robust and pleasant; after bottle ageing, more interesting qualities emerge : mineral and hydrocargon notes, refinement and balance, power and intensity. Elisa examines the grapes and transforms the bunches in labels that tell the story of La Colombera and its territory : Colli Tortonesi V.Q.P.R.D (Quality Wines) Barbera Elisa, aged in wood, a wine dedicated to each woman of the family, while a tractor is bought for the birth of a son. Vegia Rampana (Old Witch), Barbera aged in steel. Suciaja, local Nibiò vine related to Dolcetto Romba Croatina in steel Archè Croatina in wood Bricco Bartolomeo, 100% Cortese.

  • Elio Grasso

    Elio Grasso

    Elio Grasso

    The Elio Grasso Estate, located in the municipality of Monforte d’Alba, has 42 hectares of land of which 24 are forests and meadows that surround the 18 hectares of vineyards, within the World Heritage site. The vineyards owned by the Grasso family are the estate’s greatest assets. The area where they are located has always been considered outstanding wine country, as is demonstrated by the inclusion of our holdings in the map of the finest vineyards drawn up by the great historian, Lorenzo Fantini, in the early 20th century. In the early 1980s we decided to go back to our origins as grape growers, well aware that our work did not stop at the end of the row of vines. We had no illusions that we were inventing anything: we merely wanted to comply with the best in the traditions and work of our predecessors, without any preconceived ideas. The first logical consequence was the decision, from 1978, to vinify and bottle separately grapes from our various vineyards. Recognising the overriding need to respect and enhance the unique characteristics of the vineyards, we look on these terroir, as well-aspected hillsides are called around here, as magical places where we can rediscover our own roots. In fact it was in the early 1980s that we decided to go back to our origins as grape growers, well aware that our work did not stop at the end of the row of vines. We had no illusions that we were inventing anything: we merely wanted to comply with the best in the traditions and work of our predecessors, without any preconceived ideas. The first logical consequence was the decision, from 1978, to vinify and bottle separately grapes from our various vineyards.

    Our goal was to enable the estate to find its own space in a market where excellent producers were already operating. Our one-step-at-a-time policy began with the successive replantings of our Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. In 1986, we added a small plot of a non-native variety, Chardonnay, “educating” the fruit to express the terroir into which it had been introduced. At present, our average annual output does not exceed 90,000 bottles, a level that enables us to maintain the family-managed orientation of our work, as well as meticulous control over all stages of winemaking, from vineyard to cellar. Although our winery has maintained the dimensions of a small producer, we have equipped it appropriately, and provided it with the necessary spaces to work as simply and rationally as possible. The investment was inspired by our over 30-year-long commitment to vinifying all our grapes separately, according to the vineyard of provenance. Our cellar is provided with proper spaces where fermentation and maturation is carried out unhurriedly, and with all due attention. Every Elio Grasso wine is given time to mature so it achieves just the right balance before going into bottle. After they have been bottled, the wines age for several more months before emerging from the cellar. They will have acquired serious ageing potential, but are also ready to be enjoyed when still young.

    Description

    After a cool and fairly rainy winter that allowed the land to accumulate a good water reserve, in the 2021 vintage budbreak took place in early April with average temperatures.

    The frost in the night between 7 and 8 April resulted in a loss of around 10% of production. Subsequently spring saw slightly above average temperatures and low rainfall, flowering took place in the first two weeks of June.

    From July onwards there was a progressive rise in temperatures which gave rise to a hot and dry summer. Veraison began in the first week of August and ended in early September. The rains of the second week of September allowed the plants to recover from the summer water stress and resume the ripening of the grapes in perfect health.

    The Sangiovese harvest began on September 14th and ended on October 6th. Of this vintage were produced 11,586 bottles, 250 magnums and 20 jéroboams, bottled on 12/19/2022.

    Sorì della Sorba

    Sori translates to “Cru” – the highest, best exposed vineyard, where the sun is strongest and the snow melts first. Sorì della Sorba vineyard is a south-facing amphitheater, where an expansive oak forest full of native trees, flowers, and animals surround the vineyard. Just 3.7 hectares are planted to local varieties – nebbiolo, dolcetto and barbera – with plantings dating as far back as the 1950s.
    In 2019, Giovanna Bagnasco and her life partner Carlo Mondavi took the reins at this estate, and set about immediately converting the farming to organic with an eye towards permaculture.

    Sori della Sorba is centered in the winemaking area known as Diano D’Alba. Half of Diano D’ Alba lies within the world famous Barolo wine region, and Sorì della Sorba is just outside of the famous DOCG. An area of great, world-class potential which is capable of sitting alongside the world’s finest.

    This site, among the hillsides of Piemonte, hosts an incredible biodiversity of wild flowers, native grasses, wildlife and an expansive truffle forest that infuses its beautiful microflora throughout our estate. Rooted in ancient limestone soils mixed with clay, sand and rock this site allows for wine of incredible expression, structure, vibrancy and elegance.

    Carlo and Giovanna look forward to sharing their wines with you.

    Villa Le Prata

    Villa le Prata was born in 1860 when the unification of Italy began. Garibaldi leads the Thousand and the Count de ‘Vecchi inaugurates the Villa, making it his own hunting lodge. It then became the country house of the Bishop of Montalcino until the early decades of the 1900s. In 1980, Massimo Losappio, chief surgeon of the Montalcino hospital, and his wife Marialuce, a philosophy teacher, bought it to make it their family residence. Since the 80s the company has always been run by the women of the family, first by Marialuce and Anna Vittoria, then since 1996 by their daughter, Benedetta Losappio, until 2014 when the company was bought by Anna Vittoria and Bernardo Losappio and it is Anna Vittoria who has been personally involved in the company in recent years. A company peculiarity is given by the choice of oenologists, almost always female. Today the production makes use of the precious advice of Doctor Graziana Grassini, an internationally renowned winemaker and teacher. Welcoming friends and relatives with good wine has always been a family ritual in Montalcino. Today we dedicate this pleasure to those who want to allow themselves time in beauty and well-being. Seeing the birth of the wines of Montalcino, for this residence, is a long-lived custom.

    Description

    A warm vintage that gave life to a rather full-bodied but not without elegance wine which is showing a splendid evolution over time. Wine of great breadth, persistence, and vibrant acidity. This is a bottle that still has a lot to express.

    Obtained from the grapes of the 4 vineyards each vinified separately in steel, aging for about 3 years partly in French wooden tonneaux (never new so that they are respectful of the wine) and partly in large 30 hl Slavonian oak barrels, year of aging in bottle. Production of around 8,000 bottles a year.
