James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2017)
There’s such purity of fruit to this with both dried and ripe strawberries and citrus rind. It’s full-bodied and structured with layers of ripe tannins that are fine and polished. Tight at the end. Give this two or three years to open and soften. Try in 2024.

Jeb Dunnuck (JD) : 93 Points (2017)
Castiglione is from a collection of vineyards across Barolo, from vines that are 10 to 45 years old. Each of the parcels are fermented and aged separately prior to the final blending and are aged for approximately 30 months in oak casks and barriques. The 2017 Barolo Castiglione has pure aromas of fennel, fresh cherry, and cinnamon. Balanced and energetic on the palate, there is ripe cranberry, blood orange, and dried roses, with fine tannins. Vibrant and approachable out of the gate, this is a wonderful entry from the Vietti estate. Drink 2021-2034.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2017)
This is one of the most versatile wines to emerge from Italy in recent years. A bread and butter winner for Vietti, the 2017 Barolo Castiglione is sharply contoured and bright, with an excellent quality of fruit that can be described as crisp, tonic and rich. That extra concentration comes in part from the hot vintage; however, the greater Castiglione growing area delivers consistent quality and persistence above all else.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2017)
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.

Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2016)
While the exact blend of parcels varies from year to year, the backbone of Castiglione always comes from the Ravera cru of Novello. It has a dark and brooding character and takes time to open up. Winter mint, cedar and an intriguing earthiness offset nuances of red cherry and violets as they slowly emerge. Firm, vertical tannins shore up the palate but remain effortlessly sophisticated in this powerful and dense Barolo.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 93 Points (2016)
Appealing aromas and flavors of rose, black currant, cherry, earth and tobacco mark this harmonious red, which is beautifully balanced and lingers with accents of fruit, earth and tobacco. Best from 2022 through 2040.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2015)
Subtle aromas suggesting mature darkskinned berries, menthol and tobacco mingle with a light whiff of violet. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, unripe cranberry, licorice and the heat of evident alcohol alongside assertive, close-grained tannins that leave an austere, astringent finish.

Attractif au nez avec des notes de fruits noirs, c’est un vin aromatique et séduisant. En bouche les tannins sont concentrés et sa légère acidité ajoute une touche d’élégance et raffinement à ce grand vin.

Rum nation nous livre ici un rhum jamaïcain, distillé en pot still et affiné pendant 15 à 18 mois dans des fûts de sherry Oloroso ou de Pedro Ximenez après une premier vieillissement en fûts de Bourbon. Cette “finition” amène de la rondeur et des notes de raisin sec.
