Serralunga and the territory

Surroundings of Alba Serralunga

A particular hilly conformation composed by a long ridge running in North-South direction, denominated “Lunga Serra”, gives the name the town of  Serralunga, one of the three towns whose territory is entirely involved  in Barolo’s production area, which constitutes the eastern border.

On the top of the town stands out the Castle originary from the 14th Century, huge in its size, dominating a village in a loand rich in wineyards hills. The castle was ordered to be built by the Marquis Faletti from Barolo, as defence centre of their properties. In 1340 Petrino Falletti, with his military conquests, became the owner of a part of the village of Serralunga who once belonged to Saluzzo’s Marquis, starting the building of the castle as his own residence.

The village, consequently, developed itself around the castle and the surrounding houses still keep nowadays the characteristic circle ring disposition with only two entrance ways, which once were two big doors.  Around this suggestive medieval village, 29 Barolo cru grew up, occupying a surface of 200 hectares (a cru is a particular wineyard  to whom some specifical features  are attributed, but not in a official way). A characteristic of Barolo wines which takes life in Serralunga, is surely the remarkable tannic strength but also the ability to express itself throughout the time at really high levels.
