Barolo DOCG Castellero
Note di degustazione
The entire philosophy of our Barolo Castellero (is a cru between Barolo and Monforte d’Alba) is rigorously traditional, with fairly lengthy macerations followed by long maturations of about 18 months in 30 or 50-hectolitre oak Slavonian barrels and 6 months bottle ageing before release.
It can be enjoyed after a few months in the bottle, but will continue improving and developing its elegance during the year.
