Ruby red color. The nose is complex and elegant. Presents notes of mandarin and ripe red fruit, rose petal accompanied by a hint of chamomile. On the palate it is fresh, balanced, silky, enveloping and complete. The tannin is important but already well integrated. Long and persistent finish. We recommend decanting it a few hours before serving. Pair with land dishes, game, red meats and aged cheeses.

The 2017 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione shows all the signatures of this site, all turned up to the maximum. I am not sure I have ever tasted a Vietti Castiglione with this much heft. Super-ripe dark red fruit, rose petal, mocha, dried herbs and menthol all build in an ample, resonant Barolo. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2017 for the next handful of years, perhaps longer. A whole range of floral and savory notes punctuates the explosive finish.
