Castelletto, Roero Riserva

In the year 1362, it appears in the divisions between the Malabaila. Guidetto receives possessions in Canale, near the Church of San Martino, including “vineam Montiserrati in finibus et posse Castelletti” that was part of the ancient feud of Castelletto, as it will appear in the licenses of Ludovico d’Orléans, May 27th, 1494, to safeguard of Malabaila and their properties “nelle fini di Castelletto”.
