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.
