Elegant and intense, with notes of raspberry, wild fruit and tobacco. Warm, pleasant, with plenty of tannins. Needs another three or four years to soften.

Maceration with the skins for 15 days at 28-31°C. Aged in In 35 Hectolitres barrels where it matures for 24 months. Bottled 36 months after the harvest.
"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)
