Barolo Monvigliero Scavino 95 Ag 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"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...95+" AG 01/14

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.

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.

Good bright, dark red. Complex, showy aromas of raspberry, smoke and minerals. Juicy, pure and tightly coiled, offering very fresh flavors of red berries, red cherry, mint and menthol lifted by minerality. Finishes with suave, ripe, building tannins and a sexy complicating suggestion of leather. This has the energy for a long and graceful evolution in bottle but is already very expressive.
