Vietti, Barolo Castiglione 2016

Imported by Dalla Terra, Napa CA.

Ruby. Ultra-fragrant and stingingly brilliant; a sinus-clearing mass of medicinal cherry and hyssop. The gras has a juicy quality and the tannins fit like a glove. Digital and jittery, with scalpel-cut and a markedly long finish. If you prize explicitness this may prove to be your favorite Castiglione. Bricco Rivera fruit leads the way and this year’s multi-site blend include Briccolina, Codana, Costabelle, Ginestra, Le Coste, Mosconi, Meriame and Bricco Ravera in Monforte. Now – 2032+.
