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. Then you come to the maturation 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 achieved a good drinking maturity. A good partner to roasts, game, red meat and aged cheeses.

The producer: Monchiero

The Monchiero family started growing grapes in the 1950s when Maggiorino and Remo Monchiero cultivated the first family vineyard in Castilgione Falletto. At that time they sold the grapes to the local cooperative, which was the norm.

In the 1970's they decided to go beyond just selling grapes and start making and bottling their own wine. That was a big risk, because at that time no farmer could make a living from wine alone. As luck would have it, the brothers found an importer from the United States who bought up all of their Barolo production.

In the 1980s, Maggiorino's son Vittorio graduated from the Wine Academy in Alba and joined the family business integrated

In the 90s he took over the winery together with his wife Daniela. Her sons Stefano and Luca are now also part of the family business.

The goal is to produce sustainable, high quality wines in the spirit of local culture and tradition. The family now owns plots in the municipalities of Castiglione Falletto, La Morra, Alba, Roddi and Verduno.
