Pinot Noir vinified in white is one of the most typical wines of the Oltrepò Pavese and the lands of Montecalvo Versiggia, historically suitable with its 4500 vines per hectare, allow the full organoleptic expressiveness of the vine.

The land is cultivated following the agri-environmental precept with the minimum use of anti-parasitic substances and insecticides, on hills with altitudes between 200 and 400 m above sea level

The Pinot Noir grapes are harvested by hand in boxes and fermented in steel. According to the Charmat or Martinotti method, the secondary fermentation takes place in a steel autoclave, at controlled temperature and pressure.


His balance.



The company is located in the municipality of Montecalvo Versiggia in the province of Pavia: an area suited par excellence to the production of grapes and wine.

The viticultural history of the Oltrepò Pavese dates back at least 2000 years and has a vineyard area of ​​13,270 hectares, out of a regional total of 24,000, thus representing approximately 55% of the Lombardy vineyard area.

The territory is hilly with steep slopes that rise up to 1,700 meters above sea level in the first Apennines and more rounded ridges in the eastern area towards Piacenza. The Oltrepò hills offer a highly attractive landscape continuum and represent the third largest Italian area in terms of surface area almost entirely covered in vines and with mainly denomination production.
The variety of the territory, the proximity of the sea and the presence of rivers and streams influence the climate, which is mild and temperate, with excellent excursions between night and day, especially in the summer period.


The Calatroni family has long been committed to the growth of the Oltrepò Pavese as a quality ecosystem, with a series of initiatives aimed at enhancing the territory as a whole and raising awareness among wine tourists on the topic of environmental and food sustainability.

Stefano with his winery wanted to create a brand dedicated to the native vines (Croatina, Barbera, Uva Rare, Moradella) and the most common non-native ones (Rhenish Riesling, Italic Riesling, Pinot Noir). A valorization project based on the precept of organic cultivation , on the use of energy from renewable sources and practices with reduced environmental impact .

Their wines, produced on clay-limestone soils particularly suited to the twenty hectares on the hills of Montecalvo Versiggia, are the excellent and natural result of this approach, which is expressed in a range of sparkling wines of the highest level.

The origin of the name Mon Carul comes from the translation from the dialect of Montecalvo, where the Roman word mons (mountain) and car (term with which the ancient Ligurians called this area) come together.

Since the 2019 vintage, the company has received organic certification and the ambition for the future is to increasingly enhance the native vines, fully understanding their peculiarities and potential, for a modern emphasis on deep roots in the past.
