Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2011

$125.00

“The 2011 Barolo Castiglione is an excellent choice for drinking over the next decade or so. Open and resonant in the glass, the 2011 captures all the raciness of the years in its expressive red-toned fruit. Sweet spices, flowers and mint add attractive overtones. Today, the Castiglione appears to be showing some ill effects from its recent bottling, something I am seeing for the first time in the 2011.” 89+ Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“Red fruits (strawberry), golden fruitcake with a little marzipan, new leather, florals and sweet herbs – cool mint even. Medium bodied, fleshy wide grained tannin, slight warmth from alcohol, quite a fat mid-palate, but the acidity kicks in and cleans up, and elongates the finish, along with a carpet of tannin. Approachable now, almost, and certainly no problem drinking in the next ten years and beyond. Very good wine.” 93+ points Gary Walsh, Winefront
