Vietti Barolo Villero Riserva 1990

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit darker in the glass than the preceding wines this offers a new range of youthfulness. Fresh in the nose with notes of blond tobacco and earthy sotto bosco just peaking out of the closed nose. Powerful fruit still buffering the tannins though they do clamp down on the short finish that offers good mineral freshness. There is a taut core of good cherry fruit lurking in there.After 3 hours this offers a riper nose flush with dried fruits and ripe herbs. Languid and lush in the mouth this is well balanced and round but fairly 2-toned with contrasting very ripe fruits and very ripe herbs and not much else adding complexity. Still this does have a long finish and is fun to drink in a dumb blond way, and who doesn't need a dumb blond once in a while? 2008-2015

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
