Castiglione Falletto. Lustrous mid ruby with orange tinges. Very tight nose with a hint of floor polish. Youthful, pure and tannic. Well balanced, long and captivating.

From the Castiglione Falletto township, the 2012 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a full and generous wine with dark fruit and cassis that segues to tar, smoke and licorice. It shows classic Nebbiolo lines without too many extra bells and whistles. The traditional and consistent style achieved by the Oddero family gives these wines great potential for a happy aging evolution. The finish offers smoothly polished and silky tannins.
