There are few more vaunted producers in Piedmont than Vietti. Their 2016s are at the top of the heap, including a rare 100-point score for their Ravera bottling. This entry level bottle over delivers for the money -- many 2016 Barolos with these scores are priced well north of $100 / bottle. Limited.
From Vinous: "The 2016 Barolo Castiglione is a dazzling wine that will show readers just how compelling this vintage is, even among entry-level wines from top producers. Rich, ample and explosive, the 2016 possesses tremendous richness and resonance from the very first taste. Bright red cherry and red plum fruit, wild flowers, mint, blood orange and spice build as this sumptuous, dramatic Barolo shows all it's got. As always, the Castiglione is built on a core of fruit from Ravera. All I can say is: What a wine!"
