Goedhuis, March 2022
Like a tightly coiled spring, the aromatics of this 2018 Castiglione are quivering under the surface, subtle wild forest fruits, red berries and violets are waiting to snap out and unwind after some time in the cellar. The palate is compact too, showing beautifully ripe but powerful tannins that give exquisite texture but also tension. We are excited to watch this wine unfurl and knit together with time. Drink 2025-2035.
Antonio Galloni, November 2021,
The 2018 Barolo Castiglione is bright, fresh and delineated. Crushed red berry fruit, white pepper, chalk, mint and rose petal all run through this gorgeous, sculpted Barolo. The purity of the fruit and overall energy here are captivating. I would cellar the 2018 for at least a few years. It's a gorgeous wine in the making. Drinking window: 2024 - 2036.

Plenty of wild-berry character to the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with good fruit focus and firm tannin that will need a year or two to soften. Bright and youthful. Give it time. Best from 2024.
Piedmont is located in the north western corner of Italy. Though several grape varieties are prominent such as Dolcetto, Barbera and Moscato, it is Nebbiolo that reigns supreme. It produces wines that are not particularly deep in colour, yet they are perfumed, powerful and can age for many years. Due to the ethereal nature of the Nebbiolo grape and the numerous single vineyard wines, many compare top examples to grand cru Burgundies of the Côte de Nuits.Mountainous, its vineyards are cut into the hillsides forming terraces reminiscent of the Mosel Valley in Germany and the northern Rhone Valley in France. The two most notable appellations are Barolo and Barbaresco.
