REVIEW
The 2005 Barolo Riserva Vignolo emerges from the glass with freshly cut flowers, tar, mint, licorice and plums. There is an exotic quality to the fruit I find very appealing, yet this remains a quintessential Castiglione Falletto Barolo built on aromatics, elegant fruit and silky tannins. There is an energy and vibrancy I find highly appealing. The 2005 is a feminine Vignolo, but the wine gains considerable richness as it sits in the glass. This is a fabulous showing. - Wine Advocate
