The 2004 Barolo Castelletto is the liveliest and darkest of Veglio’s Barolos, but that is not surprising since this is his only wine to come from Monforte rather than La Morra. A deep, dark violet, it possesses gorgeous aromas of dried flowers, vibrant black cherries, pine, spice and minerals buffered by firm tannins that frame its expansive, generous personality. It will be the last of these Barolos to come around, but is shaping up to be another gem from a producer who has made huge strides in the last few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
Good dark red. Subdued but complex nose offers currant, tobacco, mocha, underbrush and sweet oak notes. Silky and fat on entry, then a bit more reticent and backward in the middle palate, offering flavors of cherry liqueur, menthol and underbrush. This boasts very good depth and verve, with the firm tannins in balance with the wine's material.
Berry and cherry character, with a hint of vanilla, follows through to a medium body, with firm tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2010. (Web-2008)
