About The Wine
The Vietti Barolo Castiglione comes from several small vineyards in Barolo but the end result is a tightly knit wine showing great concentration - and quality.
Like many Barolos, the richness is hidden behind a mountain of tannin, and after a few years in barrel and bottle, this tannin is coming together to create a more well-rounded wine where the fruit can take some prominence. Black fruits, savoury notes of leather, cinnamon and tobacco, and even some pretty floral tones, are in abundance, bouncing along this vibrant and completely satisfying palate.
Hold your horses just a tad and cellar it for a few more years and then reap the rich rewards.
About Cantina Vietti
Cantina Vietti has a storied history that began with its establishment in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti, in the hills of the Langhe subregion of Piemonte.
The winery took a wonderful turn when, in the 1960s, Luciana Vietti married winemaker and art connoisseur Alfredo Currado, who not only helped revolutionise the production of their finest Barolo crus, but also championed single-varietal Arneis, and the use of labels created by different artists.
In 2016, the estate was sold to Krause Holdings, and this injection of capital has allowed Luciana and Alfredo's son Luca and his wife Elena to acquire some new premium crus and plan for the future.
