Reverdito Barolo Castagni is brick red in color with a nose of cherry, raspberry, strawberry, mocha, leather and floral notes. It is full-bodied with bright acidity, lean tannins, and rich flavors of raspberries, cherries, anise, oak and spice.
Aromas of herb, pressed rose, ripe berry and a funky whiff of farm animal come together on this. The firm palate offers tart red cherry, chopped herb and a balsamic note alongside bracing tannins and bright acidity. An earthy, bitter note of game marks the finish.

Drink now, but will keep
At last, a good value Barolo! A powerful wine it is certainly accessible now.
Good depth of ruby-garnet colour with an intensely perfumed nose with floral notes and a touch of mint lifting the ripe dark fruit. Tremendous structure, dense, tight tannins, intense plums and prunes on the palate and the characteristic. Long with a floral, aniseed quality on the finish.
The 2005 Barolo is dark garnet in colour, with brilliant ruby lights. On the nose it is fragrant, with perfumes of red fruits, flowers and spice, particularly violets, maraschino cherries and nutmeg. Lovely rounded tannins on the palate give structure to the fruit which is more accessible than the previous vintage. A perfect balance and a long, perfumed finish.
Medium red in colour with brick tones. On the nose, this wine is all spices and cloves. On the palate, it is lean with a great structure. It has flavours of bitter cherries and earthy liquorice. The finish is good with a lingering persistence in the mouth.
Intense and truffley on the nose, it is rose-scented with a touch of coffee. On the palate, it shows great power and intensity, with the characteristic tannins of Serralunga Barolo balanced by the rich fruit produced by this wonderful vineyard.
