The Vietti family has been producing wine in Castiglione Falletto in the heart of Le Langhe in Piedmont for five generations, with 33 estate vineyards located across all 11 communes designated for the cultivation and production of Barolo, plus Roero for Arneis and Agliano Asti for Barbera and Moscato. In 2016 Vietti was purchased by the American Krause family, however current generation winemaker Luca Currado-Vietti continues to direct the Vietti Estate meticulously, together with his wife Elena Penna-Currado, to produce some of the finest and most representative wines of Le Langhe.

The “Castiglione” Barolo is our take on Barolo classico. The grapes come from small yet significant vineyards in the various municipalities of Barolo, and the vines are between 10 and 45 years old. 

Medium ruby with faint brick and purple reflections; the bouquet is very savoury with clean leather and fresh-turned earth aromas, dried flowers and dried herbs, remarkably complex and deep. The wine is full-bodied and rich on the palate with intense savoury flavours and ample but smooth tannins that are in excellent harmony. Full finish and impressive length. A superb and quite powerful wine that over-delivers as an entry-level Barolo. There is an extra degree of richeness rare in Barolo at this level. Great value.
