Vietti – Barolo Castiglione 2017

R1,095.00

Winemaking: Made from grapes of small very important parcels of vineyards in Barolo. All the different single vineyards are vinified and aged separately with slightly different processes to highlight the typical characteristics of each “terroir”.
Ageing: The wine is aged for about 30 months in oak casks and barriques; all parcels are then carefully blended before bottling.
Description: On the nose explosive, opulent, charming and immediate. Hints of plum, ripe red and black cherry, blackberry, sour cherry, rose petals and tobacco. On the palate it is classic, rich, powerful, with notes of Alpine herbs and a leather finish. Tannins are already well-integrated.

““The 2017 Barolo Castiglione is a wild, exotic wine. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, cinnamon, tobacco, new leather and rose petal all flesh out in this ample, voluptuous Barolo from Vietti. The 2017 is a wine of significant heft hidden behind a wall of tannin. Give it a few years to soften or open it well in advance. Time brings out striking translucence as well as finesse.”

(A. Galloni, Febbraio 2021)

Food pairings: Stewed meats, wild game, read meats and cheeses.
