2013 Barolo Castelletto, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont

From the vineyard that borders the winery, this is an elegant and finely-poised Barolo. There's beautiful perfume of fresh flowers and orange peel, with precision and energy on the finish. Bravo.

TASTING NOTES

The 2013 Barolo Castelletto is another superb wine from Manzone. Beams of Castelletto tannin and bright acidity give the wine its super-distinctive feel. A wine of focus and drive, the Castelletto will appeal most to readers who enjoy taut, vibrant Barolos. This is another superb showing from Manzone.
