Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2014
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Wine AdvocateThis is a terrific and flexible expression of Nebbiolo that can adopt to almost any dinner party setting. The 2014 Barolo Castiglione was designed for people who want to enjoy Barolo in an easy and direct manner. This Barolo is offered at higher production numbers, although this vintage is comparatively smaller. On average they make anywhere from 44,000 to 53,000 bottles, but in 2014 only 35,000 bottles were produced. The bouquet here is generous and broad with dark fruit, spice and tar. You even get a touch of citrus or dried orange peel. The mouthfeel is a bit thinner and more delicate in this vintage. Yet the tannins leave a firm footprint and promise a good aging future ahead.
Wine SpectatorThis is sleek and tightly wound, displaying cherry, currant, leafy tobacco and iron flavors. A firm grip locks down the finish, with a lingering element of sweet fruit. Best from 2022 through 2033. 5,000 cases made.
