Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Ken Z
8.9

Drank 5/22/19. Decent paiting with grilled lamb chops.

Fragrant nose of violets, rose petals, cherry, and a hint of truffle. A slight, musty library book scent blows off after an hour. Muted palate, with tar, earth, red and black cherry that are backed by firm tannins, which are still quite aggressive at 9 years of age. Long, dry finish dominated by tar and sour cherry. . This improved after a couple of hours. It is drinkable, but I would decant, or age another 2-5 years.

Vigna Lazzarito Barolo Nebbiolo

Explosive fruit upon decanting, then it shut down becoming astringent. 24 hours later all the components came together. Patience rewarded... — 2 days ago

Bussia Barolo Riserva Nebbiolo 2010

Had this wine almost 2 years ago. Feel the same as my earlier review. Lovely but maybe a little polished for me. — 15 hours ago

Buon Padre Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Big tannins, high acid, violets and roses, sour black cherry, rhubarb... all the hallmarks of a great Barolo. At this age it’s got some leather, but there will be more tertiary notes at year 10. A Barolo this big should be good for the long haul. No faults, traditionally produced, delicious... drinking now with the fruit of 2013. — 15 days ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Il Ritrivo in Positano. Popped and poured. Light scarlet in the glass. Thin and translucent. This starts off very quiet, offering some ripe cherries and spice. With air it gains a little bit of body and adds some nice sweet fruit but never emerges fully to show what it’s got. Compared to the A Conterno Cicala next to it, this is delicate, feminine and a bit of a surprise it didn’t have more to show. Not sure about this. Probably just needs time. — 3 days ago

Giacomo Conterno

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2005

From Giacomo Conterno on a year I they did a Monfortino. So no “upgrade” here. Stunning wine with all the red and dark berries and the crushed flowers, elegant, understated power, great balance. Drink or hold, up to you. Great wine now and will last very many years. — 11 hours ago

Ceretto

Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

A bit early to open this wine but I had the pangs for a Barolo. Quintessential Barolo. Opens to a tartness of cherries and spice. Amongst the layers, the fruit pops with a hint of earthiness, herbal notes and mushroom. This has the makings of a great vintage. With only a 1 hr decant, I'm rating this high on the speculation of what's to come. Clearly opened well before it's maturity. — 16 days ago

Bussia Cicala Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Il Ritrivo in Positano. Decanted for 45 min. Dark purple and opaque. Powerful nose. Notes of roses, dark wood, some tar, currants and a little bit of anise. Rich in the mouth. This has big broad shoulders compared to the 13 Monprivato next to it which is dainty and subtle. Gained complexity in the glass over the night. Would love to try this again on 20 years to see where it lands. Much potential ahead for this. — 3 days ago

Pio Cesare

Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

I was simply mesmerized by this 2010 Pio Cesare Barolo (WWB, 94) which showed considerably better on the second day. While only an infant now, this displays wonderful red rose, red raspberry cordial, blood orange zest, and sweet tobacco with leather flavors. The weight and verve of this Barolo really entices, particularly once the tannins begin to settle. This great Pio Cesare will age gracefully for many decades. Drink 2019-2035- 94 — 6 days ago
