Tasting Notes

"Drawing fruit from Monforte d'Alba (always known for its power and depth), the 2016 Barolo Castelletto shows classic lines and lively fruit intensity that gives the bouquet a pretty sense of lift and power. Red currants, spice, blood orange and rusty nail are part of the aromatic package. Underneath, the wine reveals a solid and tight core of primary fruit that needs time to soften and flesh out. I like the no-nonsense, direct and frank approach of this Barolo by Giovanni Manzone."

The Producer

Giovanni Manzone

In 1925 Manzone Giovanni purchased 'Ciabot del Preve' (the parish priest's house) and started making wine in Monforte d’Alba. Throughout the years, the Manzone family has purchased important vineyards on the historic hills of Castelletto and Gramolere, two of the best crus in Monforte d'Alba.

Eventually, Mauro and Mirella Manzone joined their father Giovanni in the management of the winery. Mauro and Mirella graduated from the famed Oenology School of Albaanzone Giovanni winery located in Monforte d’Alba, Piedmont.

The entire production is focused on high quality over quantity, they produce about 50,000 bottles per year. The vineyard's elevation reaches 350-500 metres — 1,100-1600 feet, the extreme steepness and the great terroir foster naturally low-yielding vines which produce wines that are approachable while young, yet remain amongst the most concentrated and long-lived of all Barolos.
