Vietti Barolo Lazzarito 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very complex on the nose and somewhat dark and muscular with aromas of pipe tobacco, plum, iron, dark turned earth and cut flowers showing excellent freshness and precision. In the mouth this is very rich with lot of fruit and a seamless texture. Rich with both power and delicacy, there’s gorgeous clarity on the palate to the big, dark strawberry fruit and earthy mineral flavors with hints of macerated flowers and licorice adding detail as this drifts off on the long finish which shows great energy and drive. The tannins here are very precise and offer great cut on the palate. As complete an example of Lazzarito as I’ve ever had. 94pts

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.

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. 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

A subtle combination of dried-berry tobacco and cedar character follows through to a full body with firm tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely layers. Better in 2015. James Suckling.

Good full red. Musky strawberry pungent raspberry game and minerals on the enticing nose. Elegant silky and juicy with terrific cut and lift to the red berry and blood orange flavors. Showcases the energy of the 2010 vintage at its best; in fact this makes the 2009 Lazzarito seem almost raisiny by comparison. The juicy slowly mounting finish features suave tannins and a lingering suggestion of orange. This beauty is sexy already but has the spine to evolve positively in bottle for 15

The 2010 Barolo Lazzarito is impeccably polished silky and refined especially for a Serralunga Barolo. Mint violets black fruit smoke and deep layers of spices are some of the many notes that flesh out on the inviting textured finish. Today the Lazzarito is incredibly primary to the point of being raw and undeveloped but it is explosive bursting with energy and flat-out great. This is also the first recent vintage I can remember tasting where the French oak is more in line with the othe
