The ForteMasso Barolo Castelletto appears a bright, brilliant ruby red color in the glass with slight orange highlights.The nose is clear and pervasive, with delicate notes of violet, spices, hay and liquorice. Harmonious, full and slightly dry on the palate with a very persistent and complex finish that leaves a pleasant liquorice aftertaste.

In the early years, it can be paired with pasta dishes with meat sauces, filled fresh-egg pasta, such as ravioli, and with structured and tasty main courses such as braised and stewed meats, including game. It pairs well with medium-long aged hard cheeses. After ten to fifteen years, it becomes an excellent accompaniment to very mature cheeses, truffle dishes and even just as a wine for meditation.

ForteMasso Description

Barolo Castelletto is the wine that most represents Fortemasso, with a distinctive elegance that best expresses the characteristics of the region. After a committed effort in winemaking, we find that this wine delivers increasingly intense and complex emotions as time goes on.

The vineyard in Castelletto is planted on slopes facing east/southeast, in sandy and limestone-rich soil. The grapes are cultivated using the traditional “guyot” system, with a density of around 4,000 plants/hectare. Production does not exceed 7 T/hectare, and the grapes are always hand-harvested into small crates (20 kg).

Ageing in wood begins in December and lasts an average of thirty months. The wine spends eight - ten months of further ageing in the bottle before being released for sale.
