Tasting Notes:
rated: October 15, 2005 , Wine Spectator
92 points "Bright and plummy with strawberry and cherry character and hints of toasted oak and spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a ripe, rich aftertaste. This has stuffing. Better than 2000. Best after 2008. Score: 92. James Suckling, October 15, 2005." Best 2008-2016
rated: October 1, 2008 , The Wine Advocate
89 points "The 2001 Barolo Castiglione is very pretty and delicate, with aromas of flowers, crushed raspberries and anise followed by a mid-weight palate of red fruit that finishes with a nice sense of freshness. A bit austere today, this classic young Barolo will reward several years of bottle age and is usually the first of the Vietti wines to reach maturity. Made from a blend of various vineyards, this wine is also one of the best values in Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016. Score: 89. —Antonio Galloni, October 2006." Best 2008-2016
