Vietti Barolo DOCG Castiglione 2016, Piedmont, Italy

The grapes are selected from vineyards located in Castiglione Falletto, Monforte, Barolo and Novello where the vines are planted an average of 4.800 vines per hectare. The vines are 7 to 40 years old with yields of 38 hl/ha, grown using the Guyot system. After harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel with daily cap submersion for extraction of flavor and color. Aging: the wine is then aged for 24-30 months in casks. The wine was blended in stainless steel tanks 8 months before bottling. “Beautiful glowing ruby. Fine earthy nose, but right now quite backward. Succulent palate with a powerful tannic structure. Really long and a little vibrant. Firm, long red-fruit finish” – From the winery
