Castello di Verduno Barolo Massara is a wood-aged red wine made by Castello di Verduno with the Nebbiolo variety in the DOCG Barolo (Italy).
Castello di Verduno is a historic winery that was acquired by Cavalier GB Burlotto directly from the House of Savoy in 1910. It is now owned by Gabriella Burlotto and Franco Bianco and in their Verduno Castle they produce long-aged traditional wines, making the most of the incredible local terroirs.
Castello di Verduno Barolo Massara comes from vineyards located in the Piedmont town of Verduno at an altitude of 265 metres above sea level. These are native Nebbiolo variety vines planted in soils of white clay, limestone and clay. They are cultivated using environmentally-friendly agriculture and harvested manually with the grapes carefully selected in the vineyard.
Once the Castello di Verduno Barolo Massara grapes reach the winery, they macerate with the skins for 35 days in stainless steel tanks and fermentation is spontaneous with native yeasts. The wine then ages for 32 in oak barrels, 1 month in steel tanks and finally spends 37 more months in the bottle before leaving the winery.
Castello di Verduno Barolo Massara is an essential Barolo if you are looking for a true Piedmont classic. A wine full of power, structure and longevity.
