Firm and salty, this red delivers cherry, strawberry, mineral and tobacco notes. Tightens up on the finish, so probably best to wait another five years. Delivers fine harmony and a lasting finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 665 cases made.  BS (12/2015)



Beppe Caviola's 2010 Barolo Sotto Castello di Novello is powerful but also extremely oak to the point the fruit is already starting to dry out. Sweet red cherry, leather, menthol and tobacco notes struggle to emerge but the essential freshness of Nebbiolo has already begun to fade, and what remains is a Barolo with limited upside potential. Especially in this vintage, the Sotto Castello could have been a great wine. (Drink between 2015-2020) AG (12/2015)
