2013

CASTELLETTO Barolo DOCG

Vintage Description

In 2013, the harvest began about 15 days later as opposed to the last 10 years, and ended early November. The mild climate of September and October allowed the grapes to fully mature and gave us the time to select the bunches with great care. Certainly these two aspects have strongly contributed to the success of a very interesting and complex vintage.

Notes

In 2013 the Castelletto grapes reached unusual ripening levels. However, this did not prevent the wine to express its classic fresh and menthol notes.
