Critic Reviews:
"Very tightly wound for the vintage. The tannins remain surprisingly firm. An attractive core of dark cherries, plums, mint and flowers struggles to emerge from beneath the wine's considerable structure. At times though, the Castelletto is deeply expressive, especially in the insistent, focused finish. This is going to require a measure of patience but it is unquestionably an interesting bottle." 92/100 (Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate issue 197)
Food:
Game, poultry, cheese
