2010 Vietti "Castiglione" Barolo

SKU #1160482 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 Barolo Castiglione is absolutely lovely upon first impact. It starts off dense, with notes of tar, dried cherry, and plum then adds layers of bright florals and spicy notes. Mineral shadings and smoked meat also appear as distant highlights. The 2010 vintage in particular coats the palate with a firm but subtle grip. The wine already shows great complexity. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2010 Barolo Castiglione is beautiful in the way it brings together the vibrancy of the year with a soft, inviting textural presence. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet spices, anise and red berries are all woven together nicely in the glass. With time in the glass, the wine blossoms with exquisite finesse, floral aromatics and exquisite overall balance. Ripe, silky tannins support the exquisite finish. An insanely beautiful wine, the 2010 will give readers a good idea of just how great the 2010 vintage is at Vietti. The Barolo Castiglione is made from a large number of parcels across the Barolo zone, many of which are of a high enough level of quality that they could be bottled separately. This is first-class juice. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2014)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Luca Currado blends this wine from his family’s vineyards in Castiglione Falletto, Monforte, Barolo and Novello, the vines seven to 35 years old. It’s a wine for the cellar, the tannins constricting around a generous, floral, ripe cherry core of fruit. It feels like it’s about to blossom with air, but only shows the clarity of its fruit more openly, still bound up in the structure. It’s a pure and healthy wine that will bloom with age.

Outer quote mark A red with dried-strawberry character as well as floral, mineral undertones. Full body with chewy tannins and a polished, refined finish. Pretty wine. Inner quote mark (4/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Graphite and mineral aromas signal this round, supple red, exhibiting cherry, strawberry, floral and white pepper flavors. Harmonious, with fine length and detail. (BS) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Captivating nose combines raspberry, truffle, earth, coffee, tobacco and a positive herbaceous note. Dense and rich but youthfully imploded, with bright acidity energizing the flavors of minerals, mocha and humus. The long, echoing finish features building ripe tannins and considerable incipient complexity. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (11/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Castiglione Falletto. Just mid ruby. Classic nose of iron and cherry. Elegant mid-bodied feel and focused fruit, that still is a little slow to come out. Richly tannic. Slow to open up, but very long on the finish. Perfect acidity. (WS) 17+/20 points Inner quote mark (4/2014)
