Barolo La Villa 2015
The vineyards are located on the eastern side of Monforte on the border with Serralunga and the crown jewel is the cru La Villa, a near monopole for the Seghesio family that sits between Castelletto and Ginestra. The winery is located in Castelletto, with sweeping views across to Serralunga. The Seghesios farm sustainably and no synthetics have ever been used. Stylistically the wines blend modern and traditional with a light hand in the cellar that favours elegance and balance. 

 La Villa is aged for twelve months in old barriques followed by twelve months in large botti. Dark cherry fruit with hints of orange, yellow peach and spice, the palate is concentrated and complex with firm tannins and refreshing acidity, wrapped up in a medium weight framework. There is beautiful balance here, one of the key signatures of the vineyard.
