2016 Barolo Castelletto, Giovanni Manzone, Piedmont

Castelletto is one of the most highly regarded vineyards in Monforte d’Alba, that also surrounds the family’s winery. The Manzones’ single hectare of vines are at the top of the steep hill, and the wine combines Monforte’s typical powerful structure with a delicate purity that’s compelling. This has notes of mulberry and loads of rose petal, and so much salinity on the finish. A wonderful Barolo, with such a bright future.

2016 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.
