Prunotto Barbaresco Bric Turot 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Barbaresco Bric Turot opens with a slightly darker color (but not by much) and similarly delicate tones of rose petal and dried spice. There’s a more pronounced mineral element of river stone or lead pencil that gives this wine beautiful definition. Crisp acidity and integrated tannins do a great job of making the wine feel important in the mouth. The is one of the nicest Barbarescos ever produced by this estate...95" WA 06/13 "Prunotto's 2010 Barbaresco Bric Turot is a big step up from the straight bottling. Sweet red cherry, plum, anise, cloves, menthol and new leather notes flesh out in the glass. The Bric Turot is layered and expressive, with gorgeous depth and plenty of resonance. The 2010 drinks well today, but should also age effortlessly for at least another decade, and likely beyond. Here the tannins are a bit livelier than the 2009...93" AG 10/13

In Barbaresco, a part of the vineyard was replanted three years ago, the last vintage with only older vine juice, Big on the nose, deep and rich with dried fruit, leather and spice notes underpinned with hints of autumnal herbs, candied cherries, astringent spices and dry soil notes. Round and opulent in the mouth, this shows a nice blend of freshness of flavor and bright acids with tannins that are both ripe and just beginning to soften. Fairly tense and clear on the palate this still feels firm in the mouth with mossy cherry fruit on the palate leading to a backend which gains some leathery and dry spice tones before finishing with fairly important tannins and fine length, all amarena cherry and strawberry toned. Pretty classic stuff with fine persistence and power. 92pts
