The Castiglione is a combination of 100% Nebbiolo from small vineyards all throughout Barolo. The vines grow on clay-limestone soils and range in age from 8-41 years old. After harvest, the grapes are separated by their cru, where they remain so until bottling and experience differentiating techniques depending on their specific site. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel, then aged in a combination of oak and barriques for approximately 30 months. The wine is finally blended together once aging is finished then bottled.
Aromatically this Barolo is delicate with notes of dried roses and violets, red cherries and a hint of fine baking spice. On the palate, the wine has mouth watering tannins with red fruit flavors, dried basil, and a kiss of leather.
