Tasting Notes

The 2016 Barolo Castellero extends over the palate with deep, dark intensity. This wine, with fruit sourced from the comune of Barolo, delivers dark berry nuances, medium richness and extraction with an almost full-bodied approach. The bouquet is presented with panoramic intensity in which you see the big picture but skip over the smaller details and nuances. The wine concludes on a firm tannic end note.

Score: 90

The 2016 Barolo Castellero captures so much of what makes this site special. Mint, lavender, blood orange, raspberry and chalk notes give he 2016 striking aromatic brightness to play off its translucent, mid-weight feel. A wine of tremendous fascinating complexity, the Castellero will delight readers who enjoy classically-built Barolos. The Castellero is perhaps not quite as deep as the most complete wines in this lineup, but that is really splitting hairs at this level.
