Piedmont, Italy

Vietti Barolo Castiglione is a wonderful expression of the Nebbiolo grape from Piedmont. Cantina Vietti was established in the 1880's by Mario Vietti, grandfather of current winery owner Luciana Vietti Currado. The family owns over 24 hectares of coveted vineyards and is among the most highly respected producers of Barolo and Barbera. Castiglione is a blend of five crus: Bussia, Ravera, Bricco del Fiasc, Meriondino and Fossati. Robert Parker calls it "one of the best values in Barolo." It is a superb wine from a great vintage!

Vietti Barolo Castiglione is medium brick red in color with a nose of cherry, raspberry, strawberry, mocha, leather and floral notes. It is full in body with bright acidity, velvety tannins, and rich flavors of raspberries, cherries, anise, oak and spice. This big red will reward several years of cellaring and drink best from 2016-2025 It is long, ripe and rich on the finish.

Enjoy Vietti Barolo Castiglione with osso bucco, lasagna, veal chops and aged cheeses.
