Castiglione Falletto. Just mid crimson. Distinctive balsamic nose that is really holding back. Stony and brooding. Hints of marasca cherries. Slow to open up while suggesting quite a bit of power. Hints of fresh mint. Generous without being heavy. Succulent and concentrated and seductive and with a cool-climate edge. Seductive, long and with ripe chewy tannins. (WS)

The Brovia 2018 Barolo Garblèt Sue’ reveals a fine texture with seamless aromas of purple and red forest fruits that appear delicately and softly. Those lifted primary notes are followed by a filigree of spice, tar, truffle and fragrant earth. The wine closes with a pretty floral note that is a mix of rose and violet. This is one of the most elegant wines of the vintage.
