Made with organically cultivated grapes and fermented with wild yeasts, this boasts alluring scents of rose, perfumed berry, dried herb and dark culinary spice. Youthfully austere but loaded with finesse, the firm palate delivers red cherry, cranberry, pipe tobacco and licorice set against a backbone of vibrant acidity and taut, refined tannins. Give it time to fully blossom. Drink 2023–2043. *Cellar Selection* (KO)
This a tight and powerful red with solid tannins and lots of stone. Full body, chewy and polished. Very long and powerful. Impressed with this length and class. Needs two or three years to come around but beautiful.
The 2013 Barolo Castellero sees a traditional winemaking approach that includes long maceration times. In the case of this wine, it ferments on the skins for up to 30 days. It later goes into large oak casks for three years of slow aging and integration. The subtle benefits of these time-honored practices are especially evident in a cool vintage such as this. This wine has the graceful aromatic approach, the acidity and the solid tannic structure for long cellar aging. 92+ (ML)
