WE 94 WA 93 AG 93 JS 93 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Menthol, eucalyptus, violet, berry, clove and sage aromas all meld together on this savory wine. The bright, succulent palate delivers dense black cherry and crushed raspberry accented with mocha, cinnamon and vanilla alongside a backbone of brisk acidity and fine tannins. It’s tempting now but will be even better after 2018.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2010 Barolo Castelletto shows a dark, saturated garnet color and an immediate sense of heft and power that builds in intensity as the wine opens in the glass. Castelletto is very different from the wines in Mauro Veglio’s portfolio and this expression will most appeal to those who appreciate more roundness, structure and darkness in their Nebbiolo. Hold off from drinking for another ten years or more. Drink: 2017-2030.
According to Antonio Galloni - A deep, inky wine, the 2010 Barolo Castelletto emerges from the glass with plums, mocha, spices, grilled herbs, crushed rocks and pine. Vibrant and totally alive in the glass, the 2010 is all about energy, class and precision. There is an element of mystery in the 2010 that is simply compelling. I can't wait to see how it ages.
According to James Suckling - Cherry cola, dried mushroom, spices and leather. Full of complexity, with good structure and tannins. Rounded, Long finesse. Better in 2016. 14.5% ABV.
