Castello di Perno is an up-and-coming estate in Piedmont of which wine lovers will be hearing a lot more in years to come. The wines are made by one of the region’s top winemakers, Gian Luca Colombo, and the style is described as “neoclassical” by Nick Jackson MW; not a traditionalist, not a modernist producer, but a new classic style of Barolo.
The 2018 vintage of Castello di Perno is 100% Nebbiolo, aged for 24 months in Austrian oak casks and 12 months in bottle. Expect aromas of dried flowers, truffles and cranberries. The balanced palate has high tight-grained tannins and complex earthy and herbal notes, with an elegant long finish.
We had the honor of hosting Castello di Perno at 305 Wines and tasted a range of their wines. All highly recommended.
