Vietti Barolo di Castiglione Falletto 2004
from Piedmont, Italy
Pale ruby color with garnet hues and powerful aromas of rich, ripe
cherries with intricate complexities of spice, tea leaves and rose
petals. With strong, rich tannins, crisp acidity and masculine
structure, this ageworthy Barolo shows incredible finesse with
excellent balance, integration and a long, lingering finish.
Food pairings: Hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses.
"The grapes for this wine come from vineyards in four different villages. The color is a deceptively light ruby with just hints of pink and orange at the edge. Powerful nose of clean, fresh aromatic tea, herbs, flowers and dried citrus. In the mouth, it slowly reveals leather, black cherry and spice, all beautifully balanced and showing its considerable, ripe tannins only on the long finish. There is great elegance as well as power to this appealing Barolo." 94 Points
