This is Vietti's 'business card' - their flagship Barolo, blended from over 11 different Cru Barolo sites. It’s an excellent vintage and the wine is a benchmark example of classical Barolo (without heavy astringency and very well balanced), and an amazing value from one of the icon producers in the region

94 POINTS, WINE ADVOCATE:
Vietti has the enormous advantage of 10 MGA sites at its disposition for blending purposes (and for making single-vineyard wines). This allows them to select the fruit they want to best express any one vintage. The 2018 Barolo Castiglione draws upon those 10 sites (including the recent additions of Mosconi, Ginestra, Bricco Ravera and Briccolina) to make what is ultimately its best-selling wine (with 35,000 bottles released). This classic rendition is tonic and clean with varietal tones of wild berry, rose and rusty nail.
