Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2001

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

ripe with a more intense nose than the brunate, balsamic, meaty, strawberry fruit and notes of coal, more fat than the Lazzarito with about the same structural elements, superb richness, really packed with wonderfully ripe tannins, great minerallity framing the cherry stone, dreid herb, and dried soil flavors. This will be great

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.

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 after 4 hours this offers an intense nose of spicy herbs, citrussy acidity, tangy fruits and salinity. Mouthfilling and seamless but without the density of the 2000, more cut and finesse. It almost seems soft at times due to the concentration of the fruit but regains great focus with complicating notes of minerality and gentle wood toned spice notes. An infant but with great promise. 2012-2025

I'm a big Vietti fan but this let me down. Drank in 2010, it was too dense, without the proper development of secondary flavors and aromas. Mostly dense fruit at this stage. The Castiglione of the same vintage is better drinking right now to be frank.

Moderately saturated medium red. Red cherry raspberry and flowers on the nose with hints of mocha and leather. Sweet round and fleshy but a bit withdrawn in the middle palate and tight on the back end. But this will be lush with another few years in the bottle. A non-cru bottling that s actually a blend of five crus: Bussia Ravera Bricco del Fiasc Meriondino and Fossati. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Bright and plummy with strawberry and cherry character and hints of toasted oak and spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a ripe, rich aftertaste. This has stuffing. Better than 2000. Best after 2008. 2,300 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Vietti Barolo Castiglione 750ml

This is very flamboyant on the palate with wild fruit and sweet tobacco aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy yet refined tannins and a long, fruity finish. This is very well-structured and reserved and there's loads going on here. Best after 2008. 360 cas... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Vietti Barolo Rocche 750ml
