"A mellow version, this exhibits plum, incense, floral, spice, menthol and tobacco aromas and flavors. Shows a spine of serious tannins, remaining harmonious and long. Delivers an extra kick on the aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2043."

"Rose, woodland berry and balsamic aromas of eucalyptus and pine are front and center on this fragrant red. The full-bodied, compelling palate has structure and finesse, delivering red cherry, cranberry, licorice and orange zest set against a backbone of assertive but noble tannins. Drink 2025–2035."

"Aromas of flowers and cedar with plums and beeswax. Full-bodied, chewy and very structured. Very linear and tight. Needs three or four years to come together. Try in 2023."
"Castiglione Falletto. Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. Cool, leafy nose with hints of tobacco leaf. Already a little bit of development going on and this is not hugely concentrated on the nose. Minerally, balsamic fruit while the powdery tannins and brisk acidity become more prominent on the finish. A little austere, but long as well – in a difficult phase right now. 17/20 points. (WS)"
