The Oddero 2016 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione draws its fruit from Castiglione Falletto from a site with 70-year-old vines. True to the characteristics of this vineyard, the wine shows enormous precision, balance and attention to detail. The bouquet is vivid and bright with wild berry, grilled herb, cola, crushed mineral and candied orange skin. The aromas are played out with pretty and lasting equilibrium. Like the other Baroli in this collection from the Oddero family, beautiful work has been achieved in terms of tannin integration. The results are firm, but silky nonetheless. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

A mix of cherry, plum and toasty oak marks this fluid style, with notes of tobacco, iron and stone adding depth. Firms up quickly, leaving a chalky feel on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. —B.S., Wine Spectator

Lots of bright berries here with fresh strawberries and some raspberries. Fresh flowers, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs time to soften. Better after 2023. - James Suckling

Grilled herb, toasted hazelnut and underbrush aromas lead the nose along with a whiff of camphor. It's firmly structured, offering dried black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside a backbone of assertive, grainy tannins that clench the finish. Drink 2026–2036. - Wine Enthusiast

Castiglione Falletto. Lustrous mid ruby with an orange tinge. Huge depth of minerally fruit with earthy, stony notes. Concentrated and pure and packed with grainy tannins. Impressive balance between firm, coating, long-lasting tannins and sappy acidity. Star quality. Walter Speller – Jancis Robinson
