Details

The Tenuta Castello di Morcote estate is located on the promontory of Arbostora surrounded by Lake Lugano, an extremely fascinating place that is expertly managed by Gaby Gianini, the soul of the estate.

172 hectares of farm with 7 hectares of terraced vineyards with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc grapes with a soil of porphyry origin unique in the whole of Ticino.

The estate has converted all its wine production into organic culture and after a decade of experimentation in biodiversity in the vineyards, in 2017 the vineyard of Castello di Morcote was the first vineyard of 7 hectares in Ticino to receive federal BIO certification.

Tenuta Casello di Morcote was confirmed in 2018 as one of the best Swiss wineries by the Gault&Millau guide and among the TOP 150 by the Vinum guide.

 The grapes of the Favola Bianco del Ticino DOC of Tenuta Castello di Morcote are cooled and cold pressed to allow an important extraction of aromas. Fermentation in stainless steel barrels at controlled temperature, absence of malolactic fermentation.

It is bottled 6 months after vinification and completes a further month of aging in bottle.

Its Terroir is in Sottoceneri (Lugano and mendrisiotto), Ticino. Typical granitic soils of the Southalpine massif, with traces of limestone. Vineyards in a hilly position, altitude 300/400 meters above sea level.
