  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

    (42 days of maceration): Deep, fresh red. Knockout primary nose offers strawberry, raspberry, smoke, menthol, tobacco and rose petal. Like liquid silk in the mouth, conveying incredible thickness to its youthful fruit flavors. Powerful salty minerality gives this utterly seamless wine uncanny urgency. Finishes with big, dusty, fine-grained tannins and great length. Currado noted that this wine was racked only three times following the malolactic fermentation. A Barolo classic in the making.

    Previously labeled simple as |Rocche,| the 2010 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione now boasts the expanded name of its single vineyard designation. This is a tremendous wine that reaches to the highest aspirations, both in terms of overall complexity and purity. The heft and sheer muscle at the back are irresistible but the wine's power is irrefutably delivered with grace and intelligence. Delicate mineral nuances of shaved pencil and brimstone add an extra level of aromatic complexity as the wine evolves in the glass. I look forward to tasting this stunning wine after a decade or so of aging. Drink: 2018-2038.

  • Decades of experience as vineyard tenders in Barolo provided the Vietti family with priceless information when they decided to go into the winemaking business in the early 1900s. The firm recently acquired an additional 7 hectares of vineyards, bringing their holdings to a total of 31. Their link to the land has been the catalyst for their vineyard-designate bottlings, which showcase Barolo's diverse terroir. The wines' finesse belies their extraordinary depth and complexity; Vietti firmly adheres to the classic style that makes the wines of Piedmont such a revelation to those patient enough to cellar them.
