Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2017 14% 750ml
Houn Hooked- 96points, Medium-depth red/purple colour, bright and glowing. The bouquet is impressively powerful and ripe, rich and multi-faceted, with high notes of mint and balsamic herbs typical of this region. Background spices, too: a glorious fragrance. The wine has impressive impact on the palate, is very full-bodied and powerful, making a massive statement for an entry-level Barolo. Great concentration and drive, phenomenal persistence and exquisite flavour. A very striking Barolo that is already drinking beautifully.
The Vietti family has been producing wine in Castiglione Falletto in the heart of Le Langhe in Piedmont for five generations, with 33 estate vineyards located across all 11 communes designated for the cultivation and production of Barolo, plus Roero for Arneis and Agliano Asti for Barbera and Moscato. In 2016 Vietti was purchased by the American Krause family, however current generation winemaker Luca Currado-Vietti continues to direct the Vietti Estate meticulously, together with his wife Elena Penna-Currado, to produce some of the finest and most representative wines of Le Langhe. Luca’s late father Alfredo was often referred to as the “father of Arneis” since in 1967 he invested a great deal of time and resources in rediscovering and understanding this almost extinct variety. Today Arneis is one of the most famous white wines of the region and 2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of this historic renaissance.
