2017 vietti, barolo, rocche di castiglione
Why We're Buying
Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. Vietti Villero Barolo Riserva and Vietti Barolo Rocche di Castiglione. These are just a few of the world's iconic duos. While Barolo Rocche di Castiglione isn't the headliner, it's still receives its fair share of critical praise. Wine critic Monica Larner gave the 2016 vintage a perfect rating, calling it "a complete wine."
The 2017 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione shows all the signatures of this site, all turned up to the maximum. I am not sure I have ever tasted a Vietti Castiglione with this much heft. Super-ripe dark red fruit, rose petal, mocha, dried herbs and menthol all build in an ample, resonant Barolo. Readers should be prepared to cellar the 2017 for the next handful of years, perhaps longer. A whole range of floral and savory notes punctuates the explosive finish.
