Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2018

Product description
Aromatically this Barolo is delicate with notes of dried roses and violets, red cherries and a hint of fine baking spice. On the palate, the wine has mouth watering tannins with red fruit flavors, dried basil, and a kiss of leather.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Vietti has the enormous advantage of 10 MGA sites at its disposition for blending purposes (and for making single-vineyard wines). This allows them to select the fruit they want to best express any one vintage. The 2018 Barolo Castiglione draws upon those 10 sites (including the recent additions of Mosconi, Ginestra, Bricco Ravera and Briccolina) to make what is ultimately its best-selling wine. This classic rendition is tonic and clean with varietal tones of wild berry, rose and rusty nail.

92 Points - James Suckling

Plenty of wild-berry character to the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with good fruit focus and firm tannin that will need a year or two to soften. Bright and youthful.

91 Points - Wine Spectator

A savory version, boasting eucalyptus, juniper, earth and tobacco aromas and flavors around a core of cherry. Firm and dry, with a chalky feel on the finish. Elegant and refined.
