Vietti Barolo Brunate 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Dark red fruit, iron, new leather and smoke all jump from the 2010 Barolo Brunate. A huge, dense, powerful Barolo, the 2010 Brunate boasts stunning depth and sheer richness. At the same time, though, it is incredibly polished for such a big wine. The Brunate brings together the power of the Lazzarito, but with a greater sense of textural polish and finesse that is typical of the Rocche. In 2010, the Brunate is all about balance and harmony...97" AG 01/14

Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage.

The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage. Since the presentation of the 1982 Barolo Villero in 1988, the artist’s labels have been dedicated exclusively to the wines grown on this great vineyard. Read less

Big fruit greets the nose, dark fruit, cocoa tinged and spicy topped with dark macerated floral notes. While large scaled in the mouth, this is seamless with tons of strawberry seed, plum skin and spicy berry fruit on the palate. The fine grained tannins lend this a gorgeous texture, long, fine and tight, with a finish that is focused and pure. A bit tight today and not showing tremendous complexity, this has all the raw materials it needs to blossom beautifully. 93pts

A 2010 Barolo with beautiful balance and complexity with rose plum and hints of sandalwood. Full body with integrated tannins and along and seamless finish. Best Brunate of the vintage. Better in 2018. James Suckling.

Good bright red. Closed nose offers ineffable soil tones to complement raspberry and menthol. Tight juicy and imploded but already shows outstanding precision to its primary flavors of crushed berries minerals and brown spices. Wonderful energy and restrained sweetness here not to mention huge material to support its serious tannic spine. Finishes with outstanding mineral persistence. 94+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
