Vietti, Barolo Castiglione, 2016


Vietti is now considered one of the greatest producers of Barolo, famed for the single cru wines that they started to releases way back in 1961. But they also produce a Barolo normale called "Castiglione", named for Vietti's home village.

The Nebbiolo is harvested from a number of different Crus (in particular Ravera) and then vinified and barrelled separately.  After a short period of aging, the wines are tasted. The lesser wines are blended together and released as a Nebbiolo. The good barrels are allowed to continue aging so that they may become Castiglione Barolo.

This is a wine to buy every vintage for drinking on release and short term (5+ years) aging.
