ForteMasso Barolo Castelletto 2015 – as featured in Forbes – in a sustainably sourced wooden gift box

This powerful ForteMasso Barolo Castelletto 2015 hails from the Castelletto MGA in Monforte d’Alba. It has won numerous Italian and International awards, including Mundus Vini Gold and Gambero Rosso Two Glasses. The winery name “ForteMasso” literally means “mighty rock”, after the gigantic boulder that dominates the vineyard (pictured).

This wine is presented in an exclusive, sustainably sourced wooden gift box. Each box is certified by The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) – an international non-profit organisation that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. The surfaces are coated with a clear matt varnish to protect and highlight the natural character of the wood. It’s stamped with the Independent Wine insignia, in contrasting red, and closes with a metal latch.

The price includes the wine and the gift box.

Tasting notes

Deep ruby colour, pronounced aromas of black cherry, raisins, dried herbs and spices. Hints of cloves and black pepper from oak ageing are interlaced with a pleasant touch of leather from time in bottle. Dry on the palate, it has balanced acidity with refined medium tannins and a long finish.
