Description

The Castle of Tagliolo Monferrato, surrounded by its medieval village, overlooks a large area of the Alto Monferrato which is among the most attractive for the lovers of historical memories that come to life again in old architectural monuments.

The oldest part of the castle is the bottom of the tower, which goes back more than a thousand years. The upper part of the tower, now 38 metres high, was built between the 15th and the 16th centuries. The castle was restored at the end of the 19th centry by the Portuguese architect De Andrade and today, thanks to the care of the proprietors, Marquis Pinelli Gentile, it is very well preserved.

In Tagliolo Monferrato the culture of the vine and the production of quality wines are secular traditions, recorded from the 15th century in the accounting books of the castle.

Nowadays, the cellars of the winery of Castello di Tagliolo are considered among the most famous of the Alto Monferrato, and their wines, well-known by wine-Iovers and gourmets, have received important national and international prizes.

These wines come from grapes carefully selected from the vineyards of the estate only.  The array of wines includes the three "denominazione di origine controllata" particular to the region : the Dolcetto d'Ovada
