RED – 2014 Barolo DOCG Castiglione
2014 Barolo DOCG Castiglione, Vietti, Piedmont, Italy
The grapes are selected from small vineyards spread in the Barolo region. All the different crus are vinified and aged separately with slightly different processes to underline the singular characteristics of each parcel and terroir. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel with daily cap submersion for extraction of flavor and color. The wine is aged for roughly 30 months in oak and barriques; all parcels are then carefully blended before bottling.
“This 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. 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.” – Monica Larner, Robert Parker
“An array of berries and cherries with a floral sheen. Bright and attractive. The palate has a layer more than most, offering sour cherries and tangy, cherry-pip flavors in a supple, balanced style. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling
Robert Parker: 93 points, James Suckling: 92 points
