Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2013
Vietti, Barolo Castiglione 2013 : 25 cs (6x75cl) – GBP 160 / cs IB
The 2013 Barolo Castiglione is rich, powerful and intense, especially for what is the estate s entry-level Barolo. Dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and menthol are all used together. Intense and voluptuous, the Castiglione shows the richer, more intense side of the vintage. Time in the glass helps release the aromatics and the brighter side of Nebbiolo. Quite simply, the 2013 is a super Barolo Castiglione that is starting to close the qualitative gap with the single vineyard Barolos.
