"Very fresh blackcurrant and leafy aromas with violets and fresh herbs, too. The palate has impressive freshness with blueberry and red-plum flavors sitting in elegant, ripe and approachable tannins. Drink or hold"

"Gagliardo's 2015 Barolo Castelletto has plenty of the energy and cut that are such signatures of this Monforte site. Dried flowers, mint, pine, dried cherry, tobacco and cedar are all nicely delineated. The 2015 offers terrific aromatic lift, energy and cut, especially within the context of the year. A touch of austerity appears on the finish, but the 2015 is very nicely done."
