"The 2013 Barolo del Comune di Castiglione Falletto is the best Barolo I have tasted from Mario Fontana yet. A gorgeous, exquisitely layered wine, the 2013 is striking in its beauty, class and personality. Exotic spice, orange peel, smoke, anise, kirsch and woodsmoke are some of the many notes that emerge from the glass. Medium in body and absolutely beguiling, the 2013 is a gorgeous wine that has much to offer. The wine's mid-weight structure makes it accessible today, but it will be even better in another few years' time. The 2013 is gracious and perfumed, which is to say very much in the classic style that makes Barolos from Castiglione Falletto so alluring. The only thing the 2013 could use is a touch more freshness. But that is a small critique for a wine that offers so much pleasure. Villero and Mariondino are the fruit sources. Don't miss it. Drink: 2020-2033. 92 points

These are the best wines I have tasted from Mario Fontana. Readers will note the addition of a new wine, Barolo del Comune di Castiglione Falletto which is made from parcels in Villero and the Valleti section of Mariondino. Fontana's Barolos have always been intriguing, but the 2013s have a bit more mid-palate density to play off the classic sense of structure that is such a signature here."
