2018 Vietti Castiglione Barolo 750ml
Winery Notes- Vietti's Castiglione Barolo is the primary Barolo produced by the winery. It is named after Castiglione Falletto, the commune where the Vietti winery is situated, but it contains grapes from a careful selection of the best 15 Grand Cru of the Barolo zone (Bricco Fiasco, Bussia, Fossati and Ravera, to name a few) all located around Castiglione Falletto. Truly a remarkable expression of Barolo year after year, it's also a remarkable value.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Vietti has the enormous advantage of 10 MGA sites at its disposition for blending purposes (and for making single-vineyard wines). This allows them to select the fruit they want to best express any one vintage. The 2018 Barolo Castiglione draws upon those 10 sites (including the recent additions of Mosconi, Ginestra, Bricco Ravera and Briccolina) to make what is ultimately its best-selling wine (with 35,000 bottles released). This classic rendition is tonic and clean with varietal tones of wild berry, rose and rusty nail.
