Tasting Notes: Red Fruit, Rose, Licorice,Tobacco
The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. Vietti wines come from Castiglione Falletto vineyards, in the heart of Barolo.
You’ve probably heard that the 2015 vintage in Barolo is special and with the Vietti “Castiglione” it goes even a little further. The palate has depth and density with a sense of power and detail to the tannins. It's full-bodied, offering dried cherry, cranberry, tobacco, licorice, earthy mushroom, bitter dark chocolate, and charred oak. Still young, it will benefit from some air before serving or some time in the cellar. This would show extremely well with a wild mushroom risotto or barbecue.
