TASTING NOTES

"Vietti's 2014 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is shaping up to be a modern-day classic. Piercing, intense and austere in the best sense of the word, the Rocche is a wine of laser-like focus that will leave Barolo lovers weak in the knees. Candied cherry, pomegranate, kirsch, rose petal and violet overtones give the 2014 its inner sweetness and captivating perfume. In a word: stunning. Don't miss it." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Really shows what was possible in this difficult vintage! What a complex nose with hazelnuts, chocolate, flowers and herbs in profusion. Hints of licorice and candied citrus peel, too. Quite a major structure with bold, dry tannins, which are already very well-integrated. A really long finish. Better after 2020." JamesSuckling.com

"Castiglione Falletto. Tasted blind. Dark ruby with bricky rim. Firm cherry and spice nose with hints of sweet tobacco. Soft cherry with the merest touch of oatmeal and framed by powdery, long-lasting tannins. Very shy but long cherry finish." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
