Was created in 2005, By Gaspare De Luca and his wife, with the aim to introduce regional products, into the British market.

Introduced onto the hills of the Roero in the early 1900s, the Barbera vine’s hardiness and constant yield made it ideal as a replacement for many of the vineyards decimated by the phylloxera pest. Its matching of strenght with finesse makes Barbera d’Alba a highly-prized wine, and the composition of the soil and microclimate here produces an intensely bright red-coloured wine with delicate purple higlights, and a fresh, fragrant nose hinting at mint and vanilla. A big wine with good structure.

During the winter, Valpolicella wine ( made from Corvina and Rondinella grapes) is passed over the skins remaining from the production of Amarone using the traditional "Ripasso" technique, which increases the alchool, body and perfume of cherries, red fruits and spices. The ideal match for roast and grilled red meats, stews and mature cheeses.
Castelforte Amarone is made from dried Corvina and Rondinella grapes. A long, slow fermentation and minimum 18 months ageing in large oak give this dry, full-bodied red wine a deep garnet red colour, a complex bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam and walnut and a palate of ripe black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and coffee on the finish. It pairs perfectly with rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or stewed red meats as well as mature cheeses.
