Poderi Oddero Barolo Rocche di Castiglione 2014 750ml
Barolo, Piedmont, Italy
Jancis Robinson 16.5
Castiglione Falletto. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with bright orange tinges. Tobacco leaf with hints of dried cherry and something candied. A little shy, but there is real fruit underneath a layer of grainy tannins.
Wine Spectator 94
A beauty, this evokes cherry and strawberry fruit, shaded by tar, iron and tobacco notes. Elegant and firm, with an echo of pure cherry on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 165 cases made.
