Cellar for up to 14 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Castello di Verduno is named after the picturesque 16th century castle set in the village of Verduno in Barolo. The estate is owned by Gabriella Burlotto and Franco Bianco and has a respected reputation for crafting excellent Barolo and Barbaresco wines. Verduno is blessed with some of the region’s finest terroirs including the prized Monvigliero and Rabaja vineyards which are farmed organically and harvested by hand to ensure only the finest quality fruit reaches the winery.

This single vineyard Barbaresco is exclusively sourced from Verduno’s Rabaja vineyard which is one of the finest crus for Nebbiolo. The south-west facing vineyard is harvested in October at optimal maturity and tends to produce particularly powerful and intense Barbarescos. The young wine is matured for 24 months in large Slavonian oak casks before bottling and release.

On the nose there is abundant dark fruit and hints of dried herbs and leather, while the first sip reveals a rich full body balanced by a gentle streak of freshness. The power and firm structure make this a great choice for extended cellaring or enjoying now alongside hearty red meat dishes such as steak or venison.
