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 nose is filled with deep notes of cranberry and cherry, this roundness and depth continues on the palate. Grippy but also irresistible, hard to put down now. The Castellero has a driving chalky, mineral quality and feels a bit fresher than the Villero, livelier. A brilliant new Barolo.

Reviews & Scores

A muscular red with plum, cedar and berry character with hints of shaved chocolate. Full body, chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs two or three years to soften.

TASTING NOTES

A soft and aromatic nose, this wine invites you in with camomile, fresh peaches, and citrus. Refreshing and tangy on the palate.

TASTING NOTES

Reluctant nose with hints of raspberry fruit and savoury, malty spicy notes. With aeration increasingly perfumed. Elegant and almost vibrant fruit palate followed by bags of powdery tannins, but the fruit prevails. Same elegance and lightness of touch as the Castellero, but with a bigger tannic load and more depth.17/20, Walter Speller MW, Jancisrobinson.com

TASTING NOTES

Deep nose of cherry with hints of dark spice and just a touch of malt and a hint of mint. Succulent cherry fruit with a touch of gingerbread and gorgeous, finely ground tannins that go on and on without demanding all the attention. Elegant rather than powerful, but skilfully executed.17+/20, Walter Speller MW, Jancisrobinson.com
