Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2000 wine review by (PB)
(NW) of this blog brought out this Barolo with a velvety gnocchi bolognese (I think).
Presence is lighter red (lighting was dim) with sweet black cherry, eucalyptus, and hickory smoke in the bouquet but "stuff" comes and goes in this tantalizing Nebiolo.
Palate--Evergreen was my first impression, tight, needing either more air or age or both. Candied cherry flavor with dry tannins and dark spices. Just a complex and tasty wine for what I gather is at the $50 price point. Raise a glass!
