This was popped and poured. Cool fruits on the nose with hints of pink peppercorn, tomato and spice, a whiff of sweet vanillin, bay leaf, red fruits. This falls in the 96,99,01 paradigm with bright yet ripe structure and a cool sense of restraint, crisp fruit and deep bass notes of tar and licorice. Just spent a few minutes here but his will be interesting to follow and try again.

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

The ’04 Villero Riserva was one of the most intense yet balanced young Baroli that I have ever tasted. The nose showed rich elegant cherries, medicinal herbs, sweet spices and a subtle sheen of vanilla. On the palate, pure red berry fruit gave way to tar and menthol as this elegant wine turned to a structure that coated the entire palate in silky tannin and staying red fruits until the long close.

Good bright red. Crushed cherry, dried flowers, minerals and menthol on the nose, complicated by spicy oak scents. Extremely tight, dry and penetrating, showing almost painful intensity today in spite of its velvety texture. Classic austere Barolo... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

We've been blessed with yet another stellar vintage of this wine. This is a keeper, concentrated and bursting with fruit and structure that's truly needs some time to appreciate.

Smells enticing, exhibiting aromas of cherry and flowers that segue to the sweet spice, floral and tar aromas typical of a mature Barolo. The cherry flavor builds on the palate, backed by a stern structure. A touch austere on the finish now, with exc... Wine Spectator.

Wine Tasting NotesPale 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.

Good full red. Explosive nose offers black raspberry, smoke, dried flowers, espresso, menthol, tar and truffle; more complex than past vintages of this blend. Suave, broad and dry, with excellent inner-mouth energy thanks to fresh acidity. The tannins build on the back end, but pepper and spice notes give lift to the long finish.

Vietti's 2004 Barolo Castiglione is superb. This impressively rich, concentrated Barolo is fresh and perfumed, with plenty of sweet fruit supported by awesome structure and power. With air delicate notes of herbs and tobacco emerge, adding further complexity. With this effort, the Castiglione bottling takes an important step in Currado's plan to make this wine much closer in quality to his single-vineyard offerings. No longer the accessible easy going wine it once was, the 2004 is a big, big wine. The Castiglione is made from a variety of plots, many of which are too small to vinify separately for purely practical reasons. These include Bricco Fiasco, Ravera, Fossati, Bussia and Le Coste (Monforte). Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.
