Barolo Rocche di Castiglione Vietti 2014 (750ML)
95 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a beautiful wine from a challenging vintage-Luca Currado tells me it reminds him of his father and his childhood. Indeed, the 2014 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a nostalgic wine with old-school Barolo aromas of wild berry, orange peel, hazelnuts and earthy truffle. The wine opens to a very attractive ruby color and dark garnet highlights. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth but extremely well structured at the same time. Some 150 magnums were made in this vintage because there is an expectation that this wine will age with grace and attitude. The Vietti estate produced exactly 46% less fruit in 2014. (It's impossible not to admire that precision.) Luca Currado likens 2014 to what he calls a "bell bottom" vintage because it reminds him of the iconic wines of yesteryear, such as 1961, 1964 and 1971." #237, 6/18.
98 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "Vietti's 2014 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is shaping up to be a modern-day classic. Piercing, intense and austere in the best sense of the word, the Rocche is a wine of laser-like focus that will leave Barolo lovers weak in the knees. Candied cherry, pomegranate, kirsch, rose petal and violet overtones give the 2014 its inner sweetness and captivating perfume. In a word: stunning. Don't miss it." 2/18.
95 Points, James Suckling: "Really shows what was possible in this difficult vintage! What a complex nose with hazelnuts, chocolate, flowers and herbs in profusion. Hints of licorice and candied citrus peel, too. Quite a major structure with bold, dry tannins, which are already very well-integrated. A really long finish. Better after 2020.' 4/18.
