Classic Castiglione Falletto from an amazing vintage in Barolo. Long, full, rich and lively Riserva Barolo. The sandy, rocky, limestone mix imparts a slaty elegance to go along with the red raspberry, star anise, tobacco, white truffle, and potpourri blend. There is instant appeal to the layered aromatics. Sophisticated and savory. A vintage that has a long life ahead of it and that will surely benefit from a long, gentle decant if drunk in the near term. Less than 2000 bottles produced.
