Cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant before serving.

The Castello di Verduno estate takes its name from the characterful 16th century castle which sits at its heart in the village of Verduno in the Barolo wine region. Owned by Gabriella Burlotto and Franco Bianco, the estate specialises in top quality Barolos and Barbarescos produced from their prime Nebbiolo vineyards which are harvested by hand and farmed organically.

The grapes for this bottling come from the estate’s Rabaja, Rabaja-bas and Faset vineyards which are harvested at the beginning of October. Following the harvest the grapes are carefully sorted and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 20 days. Then the wine is transferred to large Slavonian oak botti or casks where it matures for at least 18 months. The finished wine is then left to rest in the bottle for 14 months before release.

The result is an intense and multi-layered red that opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of ripe red cherries, dried violets and rose petals. On the palate the ripe red berry character and baking spice hints are balanced by a bright streak of acidity and very long finish. This is a wine which can be kept in the cellar for another 6 to 7 years or enjoyed now alongside red meat dishes.
