Luigi Pira Barolo Vigna Rionda 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Rose petals, mint and dark red flowers emerge from the 2010 Barolo Vigna Rionda. The textural finesse of this great site is evident in the wine's balance and finessed personality. Today, the Rionda remains heavily marked by French oak, but to be fair, the wine is still in barrel, and it is early days, so we will see how things turn out down the road. Vigna Rionda is in my view one of the greatest sites in Barolo for many reasons, one of them being its extreme finesse. If there is any site in Barolo that requires extreme care when using French oak, Rionda is it...91-93" AG 01/14

Shows some toast and vanilla on the nose over black fruit, shoe polish, tight, small red berry fruit, and a bit of dr pepper spiciness with that hint of vanilla married to black cherry fruit.  Soft and supple on entry, and surprisingly open, showing good focus on the mid palate with lots of mineral laced fruit and very fine tannins but the tannins continue building in the mouth cutting the finish a bit short. Wow this is extracted with massive tannins on the finish but even through the tannins the fruit, with hints of rust and red currant, is fighting to get out. This might very well prove to be too tannic for the fruit here. Time will tell. 88pts
