About us

Company details

Bartholomew Racca bought Tenuta Montanello on April 19, 1864 by the Earl of Castiglione Falletto Patrick Philip Scagnello.

It was for many years the home of the first Cantina Sociale of the Langhe: the Cantina di Castiglione Falletto Social that in late 1800 brought together 36 different manufacturers of this town.

It thus began to produce and market the first Barolo.

Today, after five generations, Montanello estate is still owned by the family and is run by Racca Alberto Racca leading the company in respect of the tradition, but open to innovations in the wine sector.

The Montanello hill has always been considered one of the best  cru  of the Barolo area; He was inserted by Renato Ratti Barolo in its Charter, and Slow Food among the Great Vineyards Langhe.

The soil and its excellent exposure to the south, southwest and west, make a Barolo of good alcohol content and intense aroma, worthy of its ancient history.
