Contea Di Castiglione

Vietti

Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

Very nice wine with some black fruits and some leather on the nose. Very smooth and integrated on the taste with black fruits, pepper and some licorice and long finish. Nice with a takeout meal from Anthony’s. Had an enjoyable experience when I visited the winery with a bunch of friends in 2015 for a private tasting. — 13 days ago

Villero di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1996

This bottle was outstanding. Opened with a rusty hue but 4 hours in the decanter and the color came back ruby red and the classic Nebbiolo notes were abounding. Dare I say it was even fresh at times. This ethereal wine has more years ahead. But it was outstanding tonight. An absolute stunner. — 2 months ago

Tasca D'Almerita

Tenuta Regaleali Nozze D'Oro Contea di Sclafani Inzolia 2012

Blend of Native Sicilian Inzolia and Sauvignon Tasca grapes. Deep Golden color. Lemon and Stoney mineral aromas. Flavors of lemon zest, almonds and beeswax. Wine has some heft and texture. Brimming with acidity. — a month ago

Covalli

Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

High QPR traditionally-produced Barolo, a blend of many crus in and around Castiglione Falletto. Typical Nebbiolo notes, nothing earth-shattering but no “off” components either... just a solid Barolo at a great price. Costco. — 3 months ago

I’ve been thinking about getting some of those for my daughter’s birth year. Good age ability?

2014 is in general a difficult year but this wine maybe a candidate for wine of the vintage. I have two cases and love this wine, needs more time.

Brightet, lighter and redder than Villero, therefore less likely to be appreciated at present, but will probably last longer and be even more nuanced than Villero in the long run. The tannin structure lags both the acid structure and the fruit structure, although strong mineral tension intensifies the tannin layer so it does not feel too light. The aromatic intensity also lags but will be amplified through bottle aging. — 4 months ago
