Marco�s family domaine was put together by his father, who bought the castle (yes, there really is one, and Marco makes his wine within its 10th Century cellars) and surrounding vineyards, which are situated on the lower slopes of the mountains that tower either side of the little town of Rovereto. Although his father was not a vigneron (like most growers in the village, he sold each years' crop to the cooperative), Marco
knew from an early age that he wanted to make wine, and since 1989, Marco has been (fanatically) tending the vineyards and making the wine at Castel Noarna, as well as helping his wife run the best hotel/restaurant in town. The castle and the vineyards lie on east/southeast facing slopes at about 350 meters above sea level � these are high alititude vineyards. The 2017 vintage comes from a parcel of Teroldego that was planted in 2000 on calcareous soils. Fermented in stainless steel and aged on the lees in barrels for 12-18 months. Aged for an additional 6 months in bottle before release.
