Castello di Verduno Barbaresco Rabajà 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

AWE blind tasting - lovely nose, sweetly fruited, ripe, intense with a handful of fresh herbs sitting atop a bowl of freshly picked raspberry with a hint of sassafras and espresso adding complexity, a bit matte up front then turning fresher with nice but not exceptional fruit, a bit monolithic with a spicy strawberry tone but not much detail, quite spicy and long with that spiciness but simple. 85-86

...1500 At the start of the century, the Cerrato family starts building work on the Castle. 1585 Senatore Bernardino Scozia donates the entire estate to the Consignore of Verduno, Benedetto Cerrato. 1631 The Treaty of Cherasco: Verduno passes under the jurisdiction of the House of Savoy. 1633 The Rachis family of Racconigi purchases the Castle from the Scozias. 1737 Maurizio Rachis sells all his property to Carlo Luigi Caisotti of Nice, former Count of Santa Vittoria, and, from 1739, Marquis of Verduno. The new owner has part of the castle rebuilt from a design by Juvarra. 1799 Carlo Giuseppe Caisotti bequeaths his property in Verduno in equal parts to the San Giovanni and Carità hospitals in Turin. 1838 King Carlo Alberto of Savoy purchases the Castle of Verduno from the two charitable institutions and entrusts the management of his estate and wine cellar to the famous enologist General Carlo Staglieno. Here, following the method suggested by Giulia Falletti Colbert, the ‘Oenotechnician General’ Paolo Francesco Staglieno made the first vinifications of the nebbiolo grape, laying the bases for modern Barolo. Oddone, son of Vittorio Emanuele II and Maria Adelaide, lived in the castle for long periods. The young man, who suffered from a sickly constitution, occupied his time by studying and cataloguing fossil remains unearthed in the nearby "Rocche Patarine". 1909 The Burlotto family purchases the castle and its estate from the House of Savoy. 1953 Part of the castle is converted into a hotel and the wine cellars are restored to life for the production of Barolo and Verduno.
