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

Good full medium red. Reticent nose hints at musky currant and mint. Broad, dry and painfully closed, with toothdusting tannins currently cutting off the wine's finish. This is very hard to taste today. With their strong acidity, these 2008 Barolos may surprise with their longevity, but does this uncompromising wine have enough stuffing? (Incidentally, the Barbaresco Masseria was affected by hail in 2008, so this juice was declassified into the Perbacco bottling.)

The 2008 Barolo Brunate flows onto the palate with layers of dark fruit, spices, menthol and licorice. It is an unusually plush, generous wine for the year, endowed with tons of grace and sheer depth. This is a fabulous, layered Brunate that should drink well with a few more years in the bottle. Layers of sweet, perfumed fruit, rose petals and spices build effortlessly to the gracious, elegant finish. The Brunate is brooding and tannic, but the wine softens a bit with air. Anticipated maturity: 2018–2028.

Der Barolo Brunate ist sehr dicht, mächtig und doch von schönster Eleganz, mit einer Note von Veilchen und Trüffeln. Die Tannine sind ausgereift und fügen sich perfekt in das Gesamtbild. Tiefgründiges und komplexes Bouquet, sehr gehaltvoll und konzentriert, Barolo wie's im Buch steht mit herrlicher Kombination von Kraft und Schliff. Feinheit und Präzision auch am Gaumen mit seidenweichem Tannin und fülligem Körper.

Sweet vanilla and spice notes greet the nose as black cherry and tobacco flavors permeate the palate. Firm and linear, with a long, sweet aftertaste of fruit and mineral. In the modern camp, but finished more like a traditional Barolo. Best from 2017 through 2035.
