Castiglione Falletto. Just mid crimson. Lots of concentration on the nose but at the same time extremely fine and minerally and yet still holding back a little. Pure raspberry. Dramatic! Raspberry and cherry fruit with fantastic, animating acidity and fine, long tannins accentuating the fruit and adding even more depth. (WS)

The 2018 Barolo Villero is laser sharp and etched with ferrous mineral notes next to wild berry, cherry, cola, campfire ash and grilled rosemary. This elegant, mid-weight wine shows a very long finish and should not disappoint on the cellar-aging front. It should hold well past the 20-year mark.
