2005 Barolo Castelletto, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont

Castelletto has an east-to-southeast exposure next to Ginestra and opposite Arione in Serralunga. Traditionally made, the colour is relatively pale, with a lovely elegant, floral nose. Rich, slightly sweet, ripe, red fruits and spice are to the fore on the deep palate. This has a lovely texture and some structure; it has been very deftly handled and is almost approachable now.

2005 Barolo Castelletto, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont
Giovanni Manzone

A family run estate based in the little village of Monforte, Manzone represent the charm and generosity of the Barolo region. Cheerful and hardworking winemaker Mauro Manzone joined the family estate in 2005, with sister Mirella following in 2012. They work alongside father Giovanni to make Barolos that are approachable with pure fruit, but remain recognisably true to their roots. They’re fantastic for anyone first approaching the wines of Barolo.
