The commune of Castiglione Falletto is often described as the heart of Barolo. Encircled by the region’s other ten townships, it is one of just three that sits completely within the denomination’s confines.

The Barolo zone is essentially made up of three parallel ridges which run north to south with vines cascading down on either side. Castiglione Falletto is located on the central crest which ascends in the north from 210m extending southward to where it meets Monforte d’Alba. To the west it borders La Morra and to the east, Serralunga d’Alba.
