This is the most accessible Barolo from Vietti and the wine that casts the biggest net in terms of fruit sourcing from across many MGA sites. The 2019 Barolo Castiglione is a layered and generous wine that reflects the main takeaways offered by this very successful vintage. In fact, because this wine is not from a single site, it speaks more to the quality of the vintage than it does to any one specific vineyard. The Castiglione reveals generous richness and concentrated cherry fruit with dark saturation and good structure that comes from the thicker skins developed on Nebbiolo grapes this year. It concludes with a salty mineral note that adds focus and elegance.

Vinous: 94 Points

The 2019 Barolo Castiglione is elegant, translucent and classy. Crushed red berry fruit, orange peel, mint and cinnamon all grace this elegant, wonderfully nuanced Barolo from Vietti. I especially admire the energy here. In many vintages, the Castiglione is easygoing and quite accessible, but I see the 2019 needing a few more years to come into its own. I especially admire its focus and cut.

James Suckling: 94 Points

Extremely perfumed with hibiscus, flowers and watermelon with some fresh cherries. Medium-bodied with chewy, polished tannins and a fresh and vivid finish. Very solid. Made from about 20 different vineyards. Needs time to soften. Vegan.

This Barolo Castiglione is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Sweet red berries, freshly cut flowers, spices and mint are some of the many notes that grace the palate in a young Barolo with extraordinary finesse. Although just bottled, this shows very, very well today.

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is a red wine grape primarily cultivated in the Piedmont region of northwest Italy. This grape is renowned for producing some of Italy's most prestigious wines, including Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are characterized by high acidity, firm tannins, and complex flavors that often include red fruit notes like cherry and raspberry, along with floral and tar-like aromas. These wines are known for their aging potential, developing greater complexity, softer tannins, and a brick-orange hue as they mature. Nebbiolo's expression can vary across different vineyard sites, showcasing the influence of terroir on its character. While it requires patience due to its tannic structure, Nebbiolo rewards wine enthusiasts with a remarkable combination of elegance and power, making it a celebrated varietal in the world of fine Italian wines.
