“Tightly wound, featuring a ball of cherry, menthol, leather, licorice and tar flavors. There is an inherent sweetness to the ripe fruit, keeping this red balanced and long. Best from 2020 through 2038. 350 cases made.”–BS
“Love the perfume and berry character to this one. Lovely strawberry and cherry undertones. Spices, too. Full to medium body, round and velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Better in 2021.”
"The 2013 Barolo Castelletto offers good punch and intensity. Like the straight Barolo, the Castelletto is done in a forward style that offers quite a bit of near and medium term appeal. Bright red fruit and floral notes take center stage, while the incisive tannins that are typical of this site are very much in the background."
