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.
