Italy
Nebbiolo
Red Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : An undertow of licorice adds depth to the plum, cherry and spice flavors of this beefy red. The tannins are dense but retain a lively feel. Fine length. Best from 2015 through 2025.

Robert Parker Notes : The 2008 Barolo Castiglione is striking. Sweet red berries, freshly cut flowers, spices and mint are some of the many nuances that flow from this impeccable, mid-weight Barolo. The 2008 Castiglione impresses for its exceptional balance, polished finish and sheer beauty. This is a feminine Castiglione graced with exquisite class. With time in the glass, the wine fleshes out beautifully. Once again, the Castiglione delivers incredible value. In 2008 Vietti did not make their Villero Riserva, instead that juice went into the Castiglione. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.

Tasting Notes : The Barolo Castiglione deftly balances the open, radiant personality of the vintage with considerable underlying structure. Warm, dense and full-bodied, the Barolo Castiglione flows effortlessly across the palate with generous fruit and fabulous overall balance.
