Why do we love this wine?

Prefer your Barolos loose and dull? Don’t look anywhere here. Vinous rightly says this will appeal most to those “who enjoy taut, vibrant Barolos”. So I guess that includes only… well, all of you.

Antonio Galloni of Vinous does know his Barolos, too. Here’s what he said last year of the 2013 Barolo vintage: “ When the 2013s were younger, I thought they would turn out along the lines of the 2010s, but over the last year in particular, many 2013s have acquired a level of textural finesse and grace that is truly remarkable. In many cases, the 2013s remind me of the 2008s, but with more depth, better balance and more consistency. If that sounds appealing, well, it is.”

Manzone’s Castelletto vineyard is a mere one hectare of south-facing vines in Monforte d’Alba, and possesses a special place in their small lineup of Barolos. With five years of age, this is still a baby, but it’s beginning to unfurl some of its secrets and I’m glad we’re in its inner circle of friends. All of it’s youthful dark fruit, licorice, tar and truffle are starting to expose themselves, and we’re glad to have this in our glass any day of the week. Today’s a good day.
