Beautiful Barolo: Vietti’s Castiglione 2009
10 February 2017

Vietti’s beautiful Baroli need no introduction. Suffice it to say, this iconic Piedmont estate has spent generations crafting finely-etched, harmonious wines. “Iconic” may be bandied around, but the pioneering of single cru Barolo - now commonplace - all began with Vietti’s Rocche di Castiglione 1961. For connoisseurs, Vietti had elevated Nebbiolo’s standing, shone a light on the Langhe hilltops’ striking vineyard mosaic, and inspired an ambitious cohort of terroir-focused young winemakers.

In 2017 it is single cru Barolo that is most highly sought after. Yet the real soul, the beating heart of the region, is still traditional blended Barolo, enjoyed by the drinkers. From top producers, these offer early enjoyment, reliable quality and generous, younger vine fruit; often from crus of stellar repute. Such is the case with Vietti’s Castiglione - an entry-level Barolo blended from vineyards entirely in the Castiglione Falletto commune, including, in 2009, the outstanding Villero.
