Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2010 Barolo opens to savory tones of forest floor, button mushroom and dried cherry. You?ll also detect a pretty level of dried herb and rosemary at the rear. Those characteristics Nebbiolo aromas are in there somewhere, but the bouquet has yet to reach focus and clarity. Drink: 2015-2022. (Jul 2014)
This wine is made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the slopes of the Barolo wine-making area, which is formed by eleven villages all located on the lower spurs of the Langhe.
Young Barolo is distinguished by its ruby-red colour and by a marked tannin content which gradually gives way through skillful maturing in wood to a soft, velvety, delicate flavour.
