2013 Barolo Monvigliero Riserva, Castello di Verduno, Piedmont

Monvigliero is undoubtedly a Grand Cru of Piedmont: this shows why, in the classically styled 2013 vintage. Notes of wild strawberries and hint of pomegranate and blood orange. The palate is so silky and sensous, and the sapid finish lasts for minutes. Brilliant

Castello di Verduno

Winemaker Mario is fortunate to work with the grapes from top spots Monvigliero in Verduno in the Barolo zone and Rabaja in Barbaresco. He works with the owners, the Burlotto family, who bought the castle in 1909, carrying on a tradition of winemaking dating to 1838, when the King of Savoy owned the castle. They promote wine made traditionally, with long fermentations, use of old Slavonian oak casks and ample ageing. They’ve also taken the initiative to work with Pelaverga, a rare native grape.
