Product Description

This wine comes from an epic vintage in Italy.  Sweet herbs, rose petals, tobacco and cedar blend perfectly in this surprisingly open Barolo.  Delicate notes of aged tea round out the finish.  Impressive in its silky texture and balance.

97 Points, "Cellar Selection" - Wine Enthusiast
"Intense scents of rose, wisteria, red berry, herbs and baking spices take center stage. The vibrant palate seamlessly weaves together red cherry, black raspberry, cinnamon, clove and mint, with a blast of orange peel on the finish. Velvety tannins make this tempting now but it also shows aging potential. Drink 2020–2040." -KO, 10/1/14

95+ Points - Vinous
"A round, supple Barolo, the 2010 Barolo Monvigliero is beautifully expressive. Today the Monvigliero is incredibly primary and intense, especially in its fruit, while the typical Monvigliero notes aren't fully developed. The 2010 is going to need some time to come together, but it is a beauty. With time in the glass some of the more floral and savory notes that are typical of this site begin to emerge, but only with great reluctance. Today the Monvigliero impresses for its texture, silkiness and exceptional overall balance." -AG, Jan/2014

93+ Points - Wine Advocate
"With fruit from the Verduno area, the 2010 Barolo Monvigliero shows extra spice and red fruit with a good sense of structure and persistency at the back. They acquired this one-hectare parcel in 2007 with 47-year-old vines. The site characteristics underline exotic nuances of spice or aged tea leafs. The tannin is present but silky and polished. This wine boasts its own unique personality. Drink: 2017-2030." -ML, 6/25/14

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Rich and spicy, with cherry flavors tinged by licorice and menthol notes. Firm tannins add support to this solid, medium-weight style. Lingers on the finish but needs some time to hit its stride. Best from 2017 through 2028. 396 cases made." -BS, 2/28/15
