The history and attention to detail at this domaine are unmistakable. This producer puts out high end Barolo and this 2016 Castiglione is no exception.

94 POINTS, 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!"
