94 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate - The 2015 Barolo Castiglione is a soft and elegant expression with marked freshness and delineated fruit. Indeed, Luca Currado maintains that 2015 was not a hot vintage per se, and any jammy notes that might appear in the vintage may have to do with an overzealous approach to leaf pulling during the summer season. Old habits die hard, he says, and leaving the leaves intact contributes to the color stabilization of the wine and the successful management of its acidity. From an analytical point of view, this wine does flaunt that much-needed inner crispness. It adds focus and sharpness to the layers of dark, succulent fruit that appear on first nose.

91 Points Wine Spectator - This is sleek and tightly wound, displaying cherry, currant, leafy tobacco and iron flavors. A firm grip locks down the finish, with a lingering element of sweet fruit. Best from 2022 through 2033.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast - Subtle aromas suggesting mature dark skinned berries, menthol and tobacco mingle with a light whiff of violet. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, unripe cranberry, licorice and the heat of evident alcohol alongside assertive, close-grained tannins that leave an austere, astringent finish.

Ruby color with earthy notes of rose petals and violets. Medium weight with red fruit notes on the palate. Succulent with a powerful tannic structure and good acidity for long aging potential.
