    Love the 2016 vintage of this wine. The nose brings aromas of dried cherry and roses, and on the palate you will find raspberries, tar, tobacco, truffle, and a little Langhe dust with a good tannin structure. I love the elegance to this wine, and with all of its varietal purity here, I recommend decanting for a couple hours...or even aging a couple of years (I have some 2000 & 2001 that I am still waiting on.). This would show extremely well with a wild mushroom risotto or a barbecue Tri-tip.

    The nose of this wine is truly classic, waves of rose, truffle, smoke and earth effortlessly drift from your glass. On the palate it immediately shows you why 2016 is such a standout vintage, the focus, depth of flavors, body and lift all say WOW this is really something. The flavors echo bits of the nose but show a plumy richness as the texture spreads across your mouth, then once again the classic tar and rose flavors develop with a deepening intensity. The finish shows balance, tannin, fruit, spice and an excellent lift. The tannins are present (this is Barolo) but so well balanced you can drink this wine now but it will age for another 10-15 years easily.

    Vietti Castiglione is usually the standard bearer for affordable, high-pedigree Barolo in any great vintage, and 2016 is no different. Aromatically it is engaging and classic with roses, red fruit, and a touch of sandalwood. Textured, mouthwatering, and bursting with fruit and fine tannins, the palate is deftly balanced. Notes of blood orange, bright cherry, and licorice lead to a lasting finish. Incredibly dynamic right now, it is a ton of wine for an "entry level" bottling, and a hint of how special the vintage can be. This is one of our first 2016s and it demonstrates why so many collectors are excited for what is widely considered to be a special vintage for Barolo.
