Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2015

Vietti is one of the most iconic producers in Piedmont. Castiglione is made from the best grapes coming from several organic vineyards. Vietti keeps the yield extra low, like Voerzio, 20 hl/hectare and harvests as late as possible to get the most intense and concentrated juice for his signature "powerhouse" Nebbiolo wines. The wine is ages 24-30 months in oak. 

Generous flavours of Barolo dominated by red fruit, cigar and rose petal. The wine has a good structure, grippy tannins, fresh acidity and fruit intensity, which will age beautifully. 

Better in 2021 - 2035

(€58,67 / liter)

Plenty of perfume here with abundant roses and violets, as well as spice-dusted red cherries and hints of orange rind. The palate has depth and density with a sense of power and detail to the tannins. Long, dense and fresh.
