The Castello di Cigognola company stands among the hills of the Oltrepò Pavese,
brembraced by Piedmont and Emilia, in what was once known , until the Unification of
Italy, as “Old Piedmont”. It springs from the intuition of the proprietors, Gian Marco
and Letizia Moratti, who, together with the oenologist Riccardo Cotarella and a team
of experts gambled on a particularly favourable terroir. Significant investments in vines
and the cellars transformed the ancient castle into a point of reference for excellence.
And so, high recognition soon arrived from the most prestigious Italian wine guides.
Wine is an expression of the land, the land an expression of the culture of its’ inhabitants.
