Another winner from Garagiste. Fresh and inviting. Really enjoyed it.

Kicking this up a few points since the last bottle. Don't know if it was time or what I paired it with, but this was much more enjoyable than previous bottles. Nice soft red fruit with cola elements going on. Would like a little more acidity but can't complain. Drinks well above its price point.

On the nose - cherry, strawverry, straw and anise. Great tannins and acidity and as well balanced as I remember from the last time I tasted this wine. Still young, but a beautiful wine hiding away, just waiting for some special event years down the road.

    5/5/10, 5:54 PM - I have this in my cellar based on my enjoyment of previous vintages, but I haven't tried it yet. I've always found the Castiglione to be a good value Barolo when I can find it in the $35 range. Glad to hear that you like it. Perhaps I should pick up a few more bottles!

    On a related note, looks like you've been tasting some great wines lately.

For the value, this is one of the best tasting wines I've sampled in some time. It is a full-bodied Pinot with a hint of spice in the aftertaste. There's also a hint of "root beer" in the bouquet.
