Comes from vineyards that could technically classify this as a Barolo and Vietti view this as their ‘baby Barolo Castiglione’. The sweet perfume of ripe red cherries, raspberries and strawberry is overlaid with dried mint. Charming and approachable with plenty of pure red fruits on the palate as well as a bit of Nebbiolo power which gives satisfying grip.
Piedmont is located in the north western corner of Italy. Though several grape varieties are prominent such as Dolcetto, Barbera and Moscato, it is Nebbiolo that reigns supreme. It produces wines that are not particularly deep in colour, yet they are perfumed, powerful and can age for many years. Due to the ethereal nature of the Nebbiolo grape and the numerous single vineyard wines, many compare top examples to grand cru Burgundies of the Côte de Nuits.Mountainous, its vineyards are cut into the hillsides forming terraces reminiscent of the Mosel Valley in Germany and the northern Rhone Valley in France. The two most notable appellations are Barolo and Barbaresco.
