Overview

The Saracco winery is located in the picturesque village of Casilglione Tinella. Casiglione Tinella is located uniquely in the heart of the Piedmont Region called the Langhe which is famous for great wine and incredible cuisine; between two of the most well known towns in the Piedmont: Alba and San Stefano Belbo. Grapes were first cultivated in the hills surrounding Castiglione Tinella in the 1600's. There is a lovely acid balance in the wine that makes it perfect for serving with antipasti as well as light summr meals. Great structure with a note of mineral and a perfume of friut with a hint of white flowers.
