We are pleased to announce this is due to land in August and can be purchased pre-arrival now!
Monchiero is nestled in the picturesque commune of Castiglione Falletto in the Barolo region. The terroir here is amongst some of the greatest you will find in all of Piedmont. There's a belt of vineyards in Castiglione Falletto that some refer to as the Chambolle-Musigny of Piedmont and Monchiero sit right within this patch. These are ultra-traditional terroir driven wines of the highest order.
Wonderful perfume of roses, raspberry and red cherry, with almond, new leather, fennel and spice tucked underneath. It’s medium-bodied, supple and succulent ripe red fruits, dense but powder fine tannin, slight orange peel flavour, cool acidity, and a long finish. Castiglione though and through for its effortless combination of perfume, finesse and restrained power. No question 2016 has delivered yet another outstanding wine here.
