Notes from the Winemaker:
Vinification of grapes coming from different vineyards of Nebbiolo most of all included in the Barolo and Barbaresco area. Alcoholic fermentation lasts around 3/4 weeks. Each parcel is processed and aged separately until when they select which ones will be included for the blend of Perbacco or the ones that will keep ageing to become Barolo Castiglione.
Aging:
Total ageing is approximately 2 years. After malolactic done both in barrique and big Slavonian casks, the wine keeps ageing in oak for 2 years. Blending in steel tanks to follow prior bottling.

Tasting Notes:
Offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and powerful when young, complex and elegant with the ageing.

Food Pairings: Hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses

Alcohol: 14.12% Alc. by vol.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Luca Currado likes to remind me that this wine could qualify as a full-fledged Barolo. Barrels not used in the final Barolo Castiglione blend are used to make the 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco. In fact, its very name “Perbacco” translates into a somewhat corny “golly gosh” because that was the reaction Luca’s mom had when she first tasted the wine and was told it was not a Barolo. “Perbacco, it tastes like Barolo,” was her comment—and a legend was born. The Vietti family, along with Bartolo Mascarello and Dott G Cappellano back in the day, had battled for some variation of a Rosso di Barolo in the appellation laws. That never happened, but Langhe Nebbiolo is a concept that follows that same idea: you get great Nebbiolo quality at a fraction of the price. Today, Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the fastest-growing categories in the entire wine region. This beautiful vintage, with its balanced fruit and freshness, is a perfect example." - Monica Larner (28th Jun 2019)
