Lastly, the 2016 Barolo Castiglione from Vietti shows the warmer style of the vintage with its ripe, sexy style yet has a wonderful elegance as well as medium to full body, ripe, integrated tannins, and layered notes of black raspberries, cherries, spring flowers, orange blossom, and violets. It's not massive, but it's beautifully complex, with plenty of richness and depth on the mid-palate, and shows the sunny, sexy style of the vintage, followed by a great finish. Drink this fabulous Barolo over the coming 15-20+ years or more.

The 2016 Barolo Castiglione is a dazzling wine that will show readers just how compelling this vintage is, even among entry-level wines from top producers. Rich, ample and explosive, the 2016 possesses tremendous richness and resonance from the very first taste. Bright red cherry and red plum fruit, wild flowers, mint, blood orange and spice build as this sumptuous, dramatic Barolo shows all it's got. As always, the Castiglione is built on a core of fruit from Ravera. In 2016, the Castiglione benefits from the inclusion of several new sites, including Ginestra, Mosconi, Bricco Ravera (in Monforte), Le Coste, Costabelle, Meriame, Briccolina and Codana. All I can say is: What a wine!
