Dubious that anything could better Rocche and Villero in a Castiglione tasting, but maybe it has happened. A study in pristine, precise, crystal purity of fruit definition. Vibrant ++, and super stylish. Great appearance with depth of garnet colour, and super brightness again. The fruit has concentration and depth on both nose and palate, but is still red, red, red - the essence of Castiglione - cranberry, raspberry and Morello cherries. Anise and fennel bulb - finocchio. There is dark fruit too, but not too much mystery - this wine is up front  and confident. The palate is firm and driven - yet the tannins are soft and very supple, and wound around a juicy and generous core of fruit. A tight acid line which in combination with tannins and fruit core provide great length. Quite an amazing mouthfeel - dynamic. Terrific wine. PETER GODDEN
