2014 Barolo Castelletto, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont

2014 Barolo Castelletto, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont

From the vineyard that borders the winery. Really floral, juicy and cool and lovely tannins. Touch of pepper, really nervous and elegant, and incredible length. This is very good indeed: floral and delicate, and amazing purity.

Tasting notes

The 2014 Barolo Castelletto is another very pretty wine from Manzone. Orange peel, rose petal, rosemary, star anise, mint and kirsch give the 2014 a slightly exotic quality that is hugely appealing. The 2014 is already quite expressive and giving. It should drink well for another 15-20 years, maybe more.
