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

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 Sweet round and fleshy but a bit withdrawn in the middle palate and tight on the back end.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.
