Tasting Notes

Presenting the first vintage for this ?Cru?, this is Claudio?s first separate bottling of Castellero and what a treat he has brought us!

The Castellero has a driving chalky, mineral quality and feels a bit fresher than the Villero, livelier. A brilliant new Barolo.

Reviews & Scores

An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines
