The nose is explosive, opulent, persuasive and immediate. There are hints of plum, ripe red and black cherry, blackberry, black cherry, rose petal, tobacco. On the palate it is classic, rich, powerful, with notes of alpine herbs and a leather finish. The tannin is already well integrated. Pairs well with stew, game, red meats and cheeses.

The 2017 Barolo Castiglione is a wild, exotic wine. Super-ripe red cherry, kirsch, cinnamon, tobacco, new leather and rose petal all flesh out in this ample, voluptuous Barolo from Vietti. The 2017 is a wine of significant heft hidden behind a wall of tannin. Give it a few years to soften or open it well in advance. Time brings out striking translucence as well as finesse."
