Castellero is the name of the cru located between the towns of Barolo and Monforte d’Alba.

Vinification of the nebbiolo grapes is carried out in the Borgogno family winery in Barolo and begins with the crushing, followed by the traditional fermentation of about thirty days.

The whole set-up of this Barolo is strictly traditional, with fairly long macerations followed by an aging of at least eighteen months in 30- or 50-hectoliter oak barrels and an additional bottle aging of about twelve months before release.

It is a wine that can be appreciated as early as a few months after bottling, but it will continue to improve and develop its elegance as the years go by.

Sight

A beautiful, very intense ruby-garnet red.

Nose

It is pleasant and delicate with hints of wilted rose and notes of licorice and vanilla given by aging in wood.

Taste

You will perceive it as velvety, dry, round, rich and balanced in body and structure.

Pairing tips

The most classic pairings are risottos, fondue, game, red meats and meat dishes in general (roasted, grilled or spit-roasted).

It is true that Barolo is not a dessert wine, but a meditation wine, however chocolate and hazelnuts highlight its incredible aftertaste.

Silvia and her family recommend you try it with baci di dama (lady’s kisses) and hazelnut brutti e buoni (lit. ugly but good), dry sweets typical of our area.

The right context? On winter evenings, in front of a lit fireplace, while reading a good book.

Serving temperature: 16 to 18 °C.

It’s your guy if…

…You prefer complex and refined wines.
