Cantina Nottola

Cantina Nottola was a moribund 18th century estate when purchased in the 1980s by Anterivo Giomarelli, who proceeded to double the vineyard area to 20 hectares, build a winery, and restore the whole property. His son, Giuliano, is now in charge of Nottola and oversees the winemaking of oenologist Riccardo Cotarella. Winemaking is largely traditional using very large Slavonian oak casks, although there are some French oak tonneaux and barriques for finishing the Riserva wines.
