Editorial Reviews for Vietti Barolo Castiglione
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.
Café, chocolate, cherry. Abri 8 da manha e 9 da noite ainda estava bom
Parece que perdeu um pouco da forca ou nao viajou bem.
Como aperitivo. Caiu muito bem
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.
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
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.
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.
Piedmont, ItalyVietti Barolo Castiglione is a wonderful expression of the Nebbiolo grape from Piedmont. Cantina Vietti was established in the 1880's by Mario Vietti, grandfather of current winery owner Luciana Vietti Currado. The family owns over 24 hectares of coveted vineyards and is among the most highly respected producers of Barolo and Barbera. Castiglione is a blend of five crus: Bussia, Ravera, Bricco del Fiasc, Meriondino and Fossati. Robert Parker calls it "one of the best values in Barolo." This Italian red wine gem received a 93-point score from Parker. It is a superb wine!Vietti Barolo Castiglione is medium brick red in color with a nose of cherry, raspberry, strawberry, mocha, leather and floral notes. It is full in body with bright acidity, velvety tannins, and rich flavors of raspberries, cherries, anise, oak and spice. This big red will reward several years of cellaring and drink best from 2012-2021. It is long, ripe and rich on the finish.Enjoy Vietti Barolo Castiglione with osso bucco, lasagna, veal chops and aged cheeses.
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.
The ’07 vintage in Barolo is spectacular, something this cuvee shows with its depth and elegance. It’s made with grapes from several grand cru Barolo vineyards.
