Drawing fruit from Monforte d'Alba (always known for its power and depth), the 2016 Barolo Castelletto shows classic lines and lively fruit intensity that gives the bouquet a pretty sense of lift and power. Red currants, spice, blood orange and rusty nail are part of the aromatic package. Underneath, the wine reveals a solid and tight core of primary fruit that needs time to soften and flesh out. I like the no-nonsense, direct and frank approach of this Barolo by Giovanni Manzone.

The 2016 Barolo Castelletto pulses with energy. The flavors are dark and deeply pitched, with tons of balsamic inflections laced throughout. There is a feeling of translucence to the 2016 that is quite appealing. Time in the glass brings out the wine's resonance and breadth. Give it a few years in bottle.
