G. B. Burlotto Barolo Monvigliero, Barolo DOCG, Italy 2010
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: Italy: Piedmont
Grape Variety: Nebbiolo
Critic Score: The 2010 Barolo Monvigliero is as reticent as it is beautiful. With time in the glass, some of the aromas and flavors start to release, but the 2010 is mostly a wine of texture at this stage. Whereas the 2009 was open and resonant, the 2010 is a wine that demands the taster's full attention. Bright red berries, mint, spices and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that flow through to the chiseled finish. Hints of iron, savory herbs, tar and game add to this super-distinctive Barolo. Tasted January 2014. 94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
