  • TASTING NOTE: "The 2019 Barolo Castiglione is elegant, translucent and classy. Crushed red berry fruit, orange peel, mint and cinnamon all grace this elegant, wonderfully nuanced Barolo from Vietti. I especially admire the energy here. In many vintages, the Castiglione is easy going and quite accessible, but I see the 2019 needing a few more years to come into its own. I especially admire its focus and cut." 94 Points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The 'Castiglione' Barolo is Vietti's take on Barolo classico. The grapes come from small yet significant vineyards in the various municipalities of Barolo, and the vines are between 10 and 45 years old. The soil is rich in limestone and clay, the Guyot training system is used, and the average density per hectare is 4500 plants. Each individual cru is vinified and aged separately and in different ways to bring out the characteristics of each “terroir”. The grapes are harvested by hand in October. After gentle pressing, the juice fermented for around three to four weeks in a steel tank, in contact with the skins. This period included pre- and post-ferment maceration, involving the traditional submerged-cap method. Malolactic fermentation took place in wood. Ageing is for around 30 months in large barrels and, for a small portion, barriques. Each cru is vinified separately and assembled before bottling.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Located in the heart of the Langhe hills, at the top of the village of Castiglione Falletto, the Vietti wine cellar was founded in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti. Although they have been making wine for four generations, the turning point came in the 1960's when Luciana Vietti married winemaker and art connoisseur Alfredo Currado, whose intuitions – from the production of one of the first Barolo crus (Rocche di Castiglione – 1961), through the single-varietal vinification of Arneis (1967) made him one of the modern pioneers of the region. His legacy was taken up by hi son Luca Currado and his wife Elena. Today Vietti is the only estate in Piedmont to own vineyards in all eleven of the Barolo-producing villages with any of the parcels located in the region’s most historic and pedigreed sites. Vietti was named winery of the year 2022 by Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media.
