The 2010 Barolo Villero is born from a vineyard site with southwest exposures and thick, compact soil and clay characteristics. As a result, this wine shows a greater sense of power and heft at the back. It opens to a medium dark color and pretty garnet highlights. The 2010 vintage shows a uniquely firm and solid sense of structure that will bode very well for the wine's future aging potential. The tannins are firm, but just shy of feeling too hard. They will of course relax as the wine evolves in the bottle. Give it time. ||I tasted through a wonderful selection of new and recent releases from Alex Sanchez that represent the 2011 and 2010 Barolo vintages, respectively. I also had an exciting sneak peek back in time to the 1990 Barolo Rocche dei Brovia that has since morphed into the Barolo Rocche di Castiglione. The big piece of exciting news at Brovia is farming is now all organic. This has been the case since the 2010 vintage. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
