    November 29, 2019 - This isn’t showing much today...relatively shut down. On the darker, richer side of the spectrum. Hold

    November 8, 2019 - Was ready to go and drank very well after only an hour decant. Was prepared to let it sit longer but it didn't need it IMO. Was hesitant to open this "early" based on other reviews, but not afraid to open my other bottles of this now!

    September 29, 2019 - These didn’t last long, really pretty nose of red florals, spice, dark red berries, elegant palate for such a young barolo, with lots of acidity integrated tannins and a good medium plus length finish

    September 13, 2019 - Medium red with slightly brown hue; licorice, black pepper; pleasant, light, fresh, lots of light red berries, some bit to it with mild tannins; may improve with more air and/or time, but already now pleasant to drink

    May 21, 2019 - I was offered two glasses of this at a business lunch. Totally closed initially with prominent acidity and tannins that leave a firm footprint. After about 90 minutes towards the end of the meal the nose is still very tight but on the palate I found a much more elegant wine of real precision and class. Medium in body with a fruit profile that leans towards the red berry fruit spectrum, the Barolo Castiglione 2013 has all the right elements for a good to very good future in 7 – 10 years down the road. 90++
