93pts, Vinous
The 2014 Barolo Castelletto is another very pretty wine from Manzone. Orange peel, rose petal, rosemary, star anise, mint and kirsch give the 2014 a slightly exotic quality that is hugely appealing. The 2014 is already quite expressive and giving. It should drink well for another 15-20 years, maybe more.

92pts, James Suckling
I love the richness and the vitality of the fruit on the nose, which ranges from blueberries and blackcurrants to cherry essence. A touch of baking spices, too. The fruit doesn’t disappoint on the palate, where it’s nicely matched with fresh acidity and a bite of savory tannins. Drink in 2020.

Sub-$40 Barolo? That’s unheard of. Did we type that price right? It’s too late now apparently! You already see this $89 Barolo at over 55% off! And did we mention the 93pts from Vinous? Eeps, the boss is yelling, may have made a boo-boo, better move quick!

Hailing from one of the best crus in Monforte d’Alba on the historic hill of Castelletto, this Barolo is just pure joy. You can crack a bottle open now and save the rest to enjoy in 10, 20 years. The aromas, my the aromas. So complex, so appealing, you can just smell it all evening! Orange peels, roses, rosemary, kirsch, black currants, baking spices, all so vibrant…so mesmerizing…we just can’t pull our nose out of the glass! The flavors are equally as vibrant with all the cherries, and blueberries and star anise and orange rinds and mint. It’s so exotic! Expressive!

Best get some while we have it at the mind-blowing price. Don’t forget, 93pts! $39!!!! What is going on here?! 

TASTING NOTES 

Notes of orange peel, cherries, black currants, mint, star anise and baking spices. Fresh acidity, savory tannins. Expressive and ageworthy.

THE STORY TO KNOW

In 1925 Manzone Giovanni purchased “Ciabot del Preve” (the Parish Priest house) and he started the winemaking in Monforte d’Alba. During the years the Manzone family purchased important vineyards on the historic hill of “CASTELLETTO” and “GRAMOLERE”, two of the best crus in Monforte d'Alba.

In the last years Mauro (2005) and Mirella Manzone (2012) joined their father Giovanni in the management of the winery. Mauro and Mirella are graduated from the famed Oenology School of Alba.

The entire production is focused on high- quality and limited to about 50,000 bottles per year.
