"The 2016 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione Brovia is explosive and exuberant from the very first taste. There is a rush of sweet red plum, red cherry, mint, blood orange, cinnamon and wild flowers in this rich, heady Barolo that captures the essence of this Castiglione Falletto site. Plush fruit and silky tannins suggest the 2016 will drink well with just a few years in bottle. The 2016 is so alluring, even in the early going; it is not austere at all. The 2016 is fabulous - that's pretty much all there is to it. 2022-2040"

"Aromas of sweet tobacco, strawberries and bark follow through to a medium to full body with ultra fine tannins that are melted into the wine. Such beautiful depth and subtle intensity. Better after 2023, but already a beauty."
