Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 94 Points
eRobertParker.com #219 Jun 2015 Monica Larner 94 Drink: 2017 - 2035 (350) Previously known as Barolo Rocche, the 2011 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione now boasts the full name of its vineyard designate. It shows profound fruit intensity with dark layers of blackcurrant and exotic spice. The overall effect is enriched, opulent and velvety. A firm tannic backbone is paired to bright acidity to fuel the wine's considerable persistence and its rich structured texture. The beauty of the wine will only improve in time. I tasted 1,200 wines during my stay in Piedmont and can say without a doubt that no wine impressed me more than Vietti's 2007 Barolo Riserva Villero. I remember the wine vividly as if I had a glass in front of me now. In fact, I have not been able to shake the memory of the wine's profound beauty. It is etched deep into my tasting memory. Luca Currado is an immensely talented winemaker and I am absolutely convinced that this is the finest bottle he has made to date. It is the culmination of a career that is only partially complete, and this is great news for all of us who admire his work. It is a symbol of the promise to come.


James Suckling's Notes: 95 Points
Tasting note: A wonderfully balanced and refined Barolo with firm tannins and delicious berry, plum and light chocolate character. Better in 2018 but so gorgeous already. (14-Apr-2015) James Suckling
