Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color. Complex and full-bodied with intense aromas of dried roses, liquorice, spice and truffles. Elegant with strong, yet balanced tannins.

Vietti:
Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage.

Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage. Since the presentation of the 1982 Barolo Villero in 1988, the artist’s labels have been dedicated exclusively to the wines grown on this great vineyard. Read less

Again only after 4 hours in the opened bottle. Riper on the nose than the 99 and bordering on jammy with a spicy, matte quality yet with ripe herbs and floral highlights. Sweet in the mouth and absolutely mouthfilling, soft acidity and soft tannins make this very easy on the palate and the fruit is very rich and juicy if not particularly complex. Maybe this lacks a bit of focus but it makes up for it with volume. Hedonism in a glass. 2008-2016

Buotque of fresh cut flowers, Tobacco and leather with berriy fruit. Full bodied with present but fine tannin and raspberry fruit. A little hot but so enjoyable. Long finsih.

The 2000 Barolo Rocche is an unqualified success with its strikingly floral nose of roses and iris, velvety and caressing body, silky tannins, and its admirable balance of force and finesse. Impor... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2000 Vietti Barolo Rocche 750ml

Vietti's Baroli are distinct. Polished with a clean palate of expressive Nebbiolo fruit.



Ruby red in color. Complex and full-bodied with intense aromas of dried roses, liquorice, spice and truffles. Elegant with strong, yet balanced tannins.
