Pale to Medium garnet in color with menthol, plum, violet, dried cherry and rose petal aromas. Very tannic, high acidity, full bodied wine with orange peel, dark cherry and a bit of anise and tar in the background on a long finish.

Tannins abound.. This needs some time, but with some food was great. Rose petal, fennel, earth, wild berry and great acid.

Is this the most accessible 2011 barolo ever? Gorgeously floral and bright with very fine tannins.

Reconfirmed my love for this wine. She may be young but she is very aromatic with lavender and black tea and beautiful bing cherry fruit set like a gem atop a fine scaffolding of firm tannins and bright acidity. Lovely...

2010 Piedmont is ridiculously good, and this Vietti rocks.

Phenomenal gravelly tannins, very long, bummer that it was a little corked, finished the bottle anyways, it washed down lamb admirably.
