Contadi Castaldi

The art of experimentation for innovative and fascinating Franciacorta

Contadi Castaldi was born in 1991 in Adro, one of the 19 municipalities of Brescia authorized to produce grapes for the names "Franciacorta" and "Terre di Franciacorta". A company relatively young, but product from the ancient passion for this area of the Moretti family, for these grapes and for these wines. Glory and pride of Contadi Castaldi is to have deepened and developed the concept of "Satèn": this term indicates the French sparkling wines that have a lower pressure inside the bottle and, for this reason, are particularly silky, almost creamy, and a soft and light perlage. These features give a very special personality, recalling the great French "Blanc de Blancs" and "Crémant". For the production of Satèn are used only white grapes, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. The Company Contadi Castaldi has 18 hectares of vineyards and a cellar of 7,000 square meters which houses the whole production cycle. In addition, there is plenty of space for research and experimentation, which are also stimulated by the organization of master training on wine: a laboratory of ideas that attracts talent and contributing to the continuous innovation of the company. The Contadi Castaldi is today a real reference point for Franciacorta.
