Vietti Barolo Rocche di Castiglione DOCG 2017

75cl / 14.5%

“Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2017 brings out all the features of this site to the maximum. I’m not sure I’ve ever tasted such an impressive Barolo Castiglione di Vietti.

Super ripe dark red fruit, rose petal, coffee, dried herbs and menthol create a full and high-sounding Barolo.

Readers should be ready to cellar 2017 for at least another handful of years and maybe even longer. A whole range of floral and savory notes punctuate the explosive finish.”

History of Vietti

The Vietti winery, located in the heart of the Langhe, on the top of the municipality of Castiglione Falletto, was founded in the late 1800s by Carlo Vietti. The viticultural properties have progressively expanded over time and today include a heritage of terroir of absolute value within the Barolo area.

Although wine producers for 4 generations, the turning point came from the 1960s, when Luciana Vietti married Alfredo Currado, oenologist and art admirer who, thanks to his intuitions, starting with the production of one of the first Barolo crus (Rocche di Castiglione – 1961), passing through the pure vinification of Arneis (1967), until the invention of the Author’s Labels (1974), became the symbol and architect of some of the most significant revolutions of the time.

The intellectual, professional and prospective inheritance was ideally collected by Luca Currado Vietti (son of Luciana and Alfredo) and his wife Elena who, through the continuation on the road to quality, reasoned experimentation and a great work of expansion and consolidation to international level, have contributed to the affirmation of the Vietti brand, now universally recognized among the best brands of the made in Italy wine.

In 2016 the historic winery was acquired by Krause Holdings, allowing Elena and Luca, always at the helm of Vietti, to enrich their company assets with some fine crus and therefore be able to look to the future with new and stimulating perspectives, the all while maintaining the family approach and imprinting that has always distinguished it.
