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. — 3 days ago

Rocche di Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Happy 15th Birthday to our great son Nicanor! A special wine for a special occasion. Last year this time, we were staying within a stone's throw of Brovia in Castiglione Falletto. Next time, we will be sure to visit. I have no doubt that this wine is still young, yet already strong, multifaceted, and brilliant--on it's way to becoming a rock star!

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. — 8 days ago

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. — a month ago

Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 1990

Tasted blind alongside another bagged bottle. This is reddish amber but more dense and less translucent to the Barbaresco sibling next to it. Notes of cherries, tea, rose petals, some tar, some black earth. This is more masculine and heavy than the Barbaresco. I guessed this as 90 Giacosa Barolo Riserva before both Giacosa bottles were revealed. This comes across as young, and well stored bottles like this one easily have a decade or two in front of it left. Unlike the 90 Barbaresco, which I think is at peak, this 90 Barolo can improve with more age. Great side-by-side compare. Great juice. — a month ago

From the moment it is poured, the 1978 is fabulous. The color alone is so vibrant. Such a classic mix of tar, dried cherry, herbs and licorice. Not the 1971, but so delicious and deeply satisfying...😊😍🤩💥😱 — 2 months ago
