Editorial Reviews for Vietti Barolo Castiglione
Compact and savory on the nose with waxy, spicy fruit that is ripe and very floral, minty and bright. Full on entry, and very round with supple tannins and bright acids in the mouth, this displays lovely astringent lingonberry fruit with sweeter cherry skin notes on the backend and through the long, bright and slightly chewy finish. The tannins really build on the palate and while fine grained, become quite assertive if fully ripe and quite suave. A lovely base barolo 90pts
Attractive mint, herb, and watermelon aromas greet the nose. On entry one finds tart cherry fruit delivered in a soft, broad style that is wide open today. Easy to drink already, this shows flashes of mushrooms and an earthiness that helps to frame the red fruit, turning fairly tannic on the modest finish. Perhaps a little light but elegant and really quite attractive and freshening. 88pts
This was very aromatic apon opening with notes of camphor, chalk and earthy, medicinal herbs framing the red fruit. The entry was smooth, suave and sexy with sweet wild cherry and herb flavors only slightly marred by a hint of wood tannin that grew on the finish. This was mouth filling with excellent balance and finesse and wonderful clarity to the fruit so imagine my surprise when I revisited this and found it to be rather closed and almost mean with some oak showing and a slightly muddy, extracted feel. This shut down rather impressively with air so either drink this quickly or put it away and hope the fruit emerges with the pristine beauty it originally showed. 90pts based on it’s earlier showing.
Nicely muscular with a big tar note up front then cherry in alcohol, dried herbs, sandy soil tones and soft dried rose and dried cranberry notes. In the mouth this starts off with considerable acidity before the fruit follows quickly enveloping the structure. Nice density with solid cherry fruit and a background medicinal tone adding complexity. Top notes of menthol and anise float gently out of the glass joining dried rose, tobacco, and leather tones. Another great Castiglione. 2013-2025 92pts
very ripe nose dominated by tarry and meaty elements with a floral topnote, lovely entry, nice density in the mouth with good but a touch low acidity, from 1999 on a blend that includes Bric fiasco for structure, Ravera, Fossati for finesse, Bussia Colonello for elegance, Villero
This base bottling was a blend of many vineyards, mostly likely including Bussia, Ravera Novello, Ravera Mosconi, Bricco Boschis, Valletta, Brunella, Foassati, and Ciabot Berton. This delivers above it’s paygrade with such wonderful, layered aromatics that revealed fresh herbs, sandy soil, sour cherry and currant fruit and hints of bay leaf, minerals, and briarwood. In the mouth this offered well-resolved tannins with fine focus. To the transparent, light red fruit. There were lovely notes of rosehips, roast meat and sandalwood and the palate and a haunting finale of roses in the mouth. What a steal this was. Firmly at peak but I see nothing to gain from keeping this any longer and it may have been better a few years ago. 2009-2014 91pts
The nose showed strawberry, anise, coconut and vanilla with a hint of lead pencil. On the palate, I found dusty cranberry and a hint of wood. The palate was rich with tones of darker fruit as it worked its way across the tongue. The finish showed a little rough tannin with dry red fruits. This wine is young, but not painfully so and with a little air showed the darker and richer tones of Nebbiolo.
Parece que perdeu um pouco da forca ou nao viajou bem.
Como aperitivo. Caiu muito bem
Café, chocolate, cherry. Abri 8 da manha e 9 da noite ainda estava bom
External Reviews for Vietti Barolo Castiglione
Pale ruby color with garnet hues and powerful aromas of rich, ripe cherries with intricate complexities of spice, tea leaves and rose petals. With strong, rich Tannins, crisp acidity and masculine structure, this age worthy Barolo shows incredible finesse with excellent balance, integration and a long, lingering finish.
The 2008 Barolo Castiglione is striking. Sweet red berries, freshly cut flowers, spices and mint are some of the many nuances that flow from this impeccable, mid-weight Barolo. The 2008 Castiglione impresses for its exceptional balance, polished finish and sheer beauty. This is a feminine Castiglione graced with exquisite class. With time in the glass, the wine fleshes out beautifully. Once again, the Castiglione delivers incredible value. In 2008 Vietti did not make their Villero Riserva, instead that juice went into the Castiglione. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2028.
Medium red with an amber rim. Musky plum, redcurrant, game and flowers on the nose. Tighter and more serious than the Perbacco, with its density leavened by strong acidity. In a distinctly sappy, dry style, showing less fruit today and finishing with oak-influenced tannins.
The 2007 Barolo Castiglione deftly balances the open, radiant personality of the vintage with considerable underlying structure. Warm, dense and full-bodied, the 2007 Barolo Castiglione flows effortlessly across the palate with generous fruit and fabulous overall balance. The wine was even better when I tasted it from bottle a few months later. It is another overachieving wine from Vietti and a bottle that is exceedingly fairly priced. Anticipated maturity: 2017–2027.
A meaty, dense style, packing plum and cherry flavors accented by tea and tobacco, this muscular red wears its burly tannins well, with enough sweet fruit for balance. Fine length. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Der kräftige Körper dieses Weines gewinnt dank Ausbau in Barriques an Feinheit, die robusten Tannine nehmen eine weichere Form an und das Gesamtbild wirkt noch komplexer. Der Abgang ist lang und wird von einer vielschichtigen Aromatik begleitet.
[90 pts Wine Spectator] A subtle yet complex and perfumed nose with flowers plum and blackberry. Full-bodied with fine tannins and a polished texture. Delicately fruity and refined. More open than Vietti's big name single-vineyard Barolos. 2600 cases made.
