Very pretty on the nose with notes of raspberry fruit, clay soil and mint. Lightly floral top notes and a hint of cinnamon. Firm, lean and pure in the mouth with unfettered cherry fruit, phenomenal depth and a silky finish. This shows more flesh than many 2008s and should prove to be a knockout with some time in the cellar. 93pts

Medium red. Cherry earth cocoa powder and dried flowers on the lightly medicinal nose; a more liqueur-like cherry aroma emerged with aeration. High-pitched minerally and fine-grained with terrific depth to its medicinal dark cherry and floral flavors. A classic primary Barolo with superb tannins and outstanding persistence. 93+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Impeccable and harmonious from the very first taste. Layers of exotic spices and dark fruit caress the palate, eliminating virtually any sensation of tannin. The 2008 is an unusually fleshy, expressive Villero loaded with class and personality. Dark plums, menthol and a host of balsamic aromas and flavors wrap around the finish. The Villero is a bit rounder and fleshier than the Rocche today, but it is just as gorgeous. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038...94" WA 10/12
