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

AWE blind tating - lots of ripe fruit, violets, a bit of coffee oak integrated with spicy black plum tones, lots of coffee, lean and crisp in the mouth with bitter mineral and earth tones, lots of almost plummy but not sweet fruit, a bit too much wood tannin, lacks a bit of detail but quite powerful with polished tannins and nice cut and focus, tannins turn a bit woody on the back end too but finishes with good length, 89-90

Light and airy while also intense with floral, earth, currant jam and light minor toast tones. A really lovely nose, very Nebbiolo and while tight shows great potential revealing soft notes of raspberry jam and wild cherry in alcohol with a subtle meaty underlay. A bit polished up front then round and rich if a touch soft. Real thrust to the herbal tinged red fruits on the palate with plenty of tannins, which are a touch rough, as is the style of the vintage, but still in balance. Lovely spice and purity to the fruit, which has a wild red raspberry, red currant astringency that is classic Nebbiolo. Floral in the mouth and on the long finish, which ends with a finale of menthol and bologna. A wine that will develop but is made in a subtle style not well suited to comparative tastings like this. 91pts

AWE blind tasting - deep liquory black raspberry fruit, a touch of salame, touch hot, a touch briary, a little powdery limestone, nice oily herbs, a bit closed feeling, good density, a touch chewy, lurking freshness, a touch monolithic, a little bit inky, but rather light on its feet for that character, a touch of boysenberry , spicy fruit, intense and deep, a nice mineral cut on the backend, good length, more liquory fruit emerges on the backend, this will improve, 91-92

AWE blind tasting - a bit heavy and dull, sweet with integrated wood and some nice spicy herbal tones, a bit smoky wood, a bit loose, lacks some focus, a bit dried out but with some nice pie filling fruit, seems to be a bit too tannic across the mp, spicy eucalyptus/vegetal tones but not refreshing, a bit heavy and dull 82-83

Suprisingly light Nebbiolo. Well balanced but more depth expected.

Dark in color, with a fabulous purity of fruit, from blackberry to blueberry. Full-bodied, showing awesome concentration, but with a finish that's beautiful and honest. Best after 2013. 430 cases made. Wine Spectator, Aug 31, 2009, James Suckling

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 scores of 92 from both Parker and Wine Spectator and 91 from Tanzer. It is a superb wine from a great vintage!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 2011-2019. It is long, ripe and rich on the finish.Enjoy Vietti Barolo Castiglione with osso bucco, lasagna, veal chops and aged cheeses.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The 2005 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco reveals expressive aromatics and a lovely core of perfumed ripe fruit on a medium-bodied frame. The 2005 is made in the accessible style that is typical of the vintage, and I would choose to drink this wine before the 2004. It is an exceptional wine at this level. In recent years Currado has stepped up his commitment to the entry-level Barolo Castiglione by using a more stringent selection for that wine, which he views as a "multi grand-cru." Currado doesnt like the idea of a Barolo normale because he thinks it debases the wine, so he came up with Perbacco, which is made from the estates second selection of fruit from its multiple holdings across the region. It is given 23 months of oak aging prior to being bottled and released with just a few months of bottle age. It has all the hallmarks of a Barolo, but in miniature. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012.Wine Tasting NotesPale ruby color with aromas of ripe cherries with hints of spice. With gripping tannins, fresh acidity, this Nebbiolo shows finesse, is well-balanced, integration and a lingering finish of rose petals.

Die mächtige Struktur, verliehen durch die Lage Lazzarito in Serralunga d'Alba, gewinnt dank dem Ausbau in Barriques an Feinheit, die kräftigen jedoch feinkörnigen Tannine sind gut integriert und verhelfen dem Wein zu viel Charakter. Der Abgang bei diesem langlebigen Wein ist sehr lang und aromatisch.
