Barolo Castiglione 2011

Vietti

“The 2011 Barolo Castiglione is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Sweet red berries, freshly cut flowers, spices and mint are some of the many notes that grace the palate in a young Barolo with extraordinary finesse. Although just bottled, the 2011 shows very, very well today” (Vinous – Antonio Galloni – September 2014)

Reviews

  • "95 points. Vietti's 2011 Barolo Rocche is rich and sumptuous in this vintage, with gorgeous textural resonance. The classic Rocche signatures are present, but the 2011 has a bit more body than is often the case. Freshly cut flowers mint, sweet spices and rose petals form a hugely appeal fabric of flavors and textures. Voluptuous and racy in the glass yet with plenty of nuance and finesse, the 2011 Rocche captures the very best qualities of the year. All things considered, this is one of the more subtle wines of the year." (vinous)
