  • The vineyards owned by the Monchiero family on the Rocche di Castiglione vineyard face south-east and border the vineyards of the neighboring municipality of Monforte D'Alba.

    This location is considered one of the most prestigious in the entire Barolo appellation. The Barolo wines from this cru are characterized by special finesse, complex aromas and a lot of elegance.

    During October, the grapes for the Monchiero Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2017 DOCG are harvested by hand and, after destemming, they ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. You come to the aging afterwards in a large oak barrel. Depending on the vintage, this process takes at least 24 months. The expansion will only be completed when the bottled wine has finished six months of storage.

    Fruity notes of red and black fruits predominate on the nose, but there are also mineral, earthy and spicy notes. The tannin is finely ground, powdery and still slightly dry. The balance and refined elegance of this wine is impressive. The formative, also spicy aftertaste is convincing.

    This Barolo has a great longevity, but has already established a good drinking maturity. A good partner to roasts, game, red meats and aged cheeses.

    Right in the heart of Barolo production is the Monchiero winery, which has been producing wine for almost a century in the fourth generation. The winery is located in the Barolo municipality of Castiglione Falletto and has made a name for itself for high-quality single-vineyard Barolo wines. Today, Daniela and Vittorio Monchiero, with the support of their sons Stefano and Luca, run this small winery and produce first-class and sustainable wines in keeping with the culture and tradition of the region.

    This Barolo goes very well with braised meat, game, red meat, risotto with mushrooms and aged hard cheeses.
