Vietti is now considered one of the greatest producers of Barolo, famed for the single cru wines that they started to releases way back in 1961. But they also produce a Barolo normale called "Castiglione", named for Vietti's home village.

The Nebbiolo is harvested from a number of different Crus (in particular Ravera) and then vinified and barrelled separately.  After a short period of aging, the wines are tasted. The lesser wines are blended together and released as a Nebbiolo. The good barrels are allowed to continue aging so that they may become Castiglione Barolo.

This is a wine to buy every vintage for drinking on release and short term (5+ years) aging.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 94
"The Vietti 2016 Barolo Castiglione opens to a grounded and authentic profile with hints of mint, balsam herb and tilled earth. The primary fruit is neatly folded into all those other components, and all received equal billing when the final results are counted. The entry-level Castiglione is always the most accessible of Vietti's Baroli, but this vintage shows a heightened level of intensity, complexity and freshness. Those silky tannins are followed by beautiful menthol brightness. This is a real charmer."

Decanter

D 93
"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
"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."
