James Suckling: 96 Points

Aromas of aniseed, white truffle, raspberries and fresh plums. Full-bodied yet reined in and nicely framed with fine tannins. Starting to show some aged, developed flavors. First year of this. Made from the vineyards of Scarrone and Fiasco. 5,000 bottles made. Vegan. Drinkable but better with three or four years of bottle age. Try after 2026 but will drink beautifully with a few hours of decanting.

Wine Advocate: 96 Points

Here's an exciting new submission from Vietti that takes us to a whole other level (and evolutionary timeframe). A very late release that is held back at the winery, the 2015 Barolo Riserva sources its fruit solely from Castiglione Falletto. In fact, it represents a special section of the best sites that go into the Barolo Castiglione. Some of that fruit was so impressive, I am told, the decision was made to age it longer (with up to 30 months in large oak casks) and give it a Riserva designation. Specifically, the grapes come primarily from Scarrone and Bric del Fiasc. Production is 5,000 bottles. The wine reveals gorgeous elegance, with evolved fruit flavors and melting tannins. The beauty is that you can drink this wine the same day you buy it.
