Vinous 94 Points
The 2016 Barolo Castelletto, the sole Veglio
wine from Monforte, is always an outlier stylistically in the range, but in
2016 that difference is especially evident. Dark, rich and beguiling in its
beauty, the 2016 has so much going on. Black cherry, plum, chocolate, licorice,
menthol and spice all flesh out in this strapping, virile Barolo. I would give
the 2016 a few years to come into its own.
