rom one of the best performing crus in the greater Barolo area, the 2010 Barolo Villero is beautifully balanced and tonic with a zesty, fresh quality of fruit that bodes well for the wine’s overall longevity. This is a cooler vineyard designate. Delicate layers of crushed rose, spice, licorice and tobacco peel off in steady succession. Villero shows a firm tannic grip in the mouth that adds momentum to its staying power and personality.
With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy's finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes - Barolo, Monteforte d'Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba - though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished - an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
