Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Barolo Castiglione delivers a radiant but subdued quality with polished notes of dry mineral, black fruit, tar, licorice, leather and many more levels of complexity. This entry-level Barolo demonstrates that great results are achieved in 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

Wine SpectatorFeatures cherry and strawberry fruit up front, with tobacco and earth notes introducing the dense structure and licorice and leather flavors. Loosely stitched, yet harmonious and long. Best from 2016 through 2030.

VinousVietti's entry-level Barolo, the 2009 Barolo Castiglione is quite pretty and open in this vintage. Sweet floral notes meld into expressive dark red fruit, anise, cinnamon and rose petals. This is an especially open, racy Barolo that should offer plenty of early appeal. While the sheer excitement of the best years may be slightly missing, in exchange, readers will find a delicious Barolo that will require minimum, if any, cellaring. I especially like the way the wine continues to flesh out in the glass. In 2009, Vietti did not make their Villero Riserva. Instead, that juice went into the Castiglione.
