Is this the most accessible 2011 barolo ever? Gorgeously floral and bright with very fine tannins.

Reconfirmed my love for this wine. She may be young but she is very aromatic with lavender and black tea and beautiful bing cherry fruit set like a gem atop a fine scaffolding of firm tannins and bright acidity. Lovely...

2010 Piedmont is ridiculously good, and this Vietti rocks.

Needs time! O course. Nicely integrated.

Phenomenal gravelly tannins, very long, bummer that it was a little corked, finished the bottle anyways, it washed down lamb admirably.

Sour cherry, crushed rose petals on the nose. Medium + acidity, high tannins. Medium + finish. Better with a few more years of bottle age.

Three hours in the decant and still a little closed, but with more time the wine unfurled to become more and more primary. Tannin profile note quote as resolute as one may expect from Castiglione, but these Vietti wines do tend to more approachable than most. Watery acid and long finish. Spot on. Worth another look in ten.

Like many Viettis this wine is amazingly accessible given its youth. Strawberry and dried flowers, forest floor and smoke.

A bit restrained at the moment but no less a beauty

Mature, elegant, balanced, mid-weight on first might, but became lean and a bit shrill on night two. Fully mature now so drink up. Score reflects a bland of both evenings...
