2004 Barolo Villero Riserva Vietti

Average critic rating : 96.0 points



The recently-bottled 2004 Barolo Villero is simply awesome. A vivid, multi-dimensional wine, the Villero emerges from the glass with layers of dark cherries, spices, violets, smoke, minerals, licorice and tar. The level of precision and clarity here is simply mind-boggling. Readers will have to wait until 2011 to get their hands on this gem, but any bottle opened before 2016 (at the very earliest) is likely to be a purely academic exercise. The Villero spent a whopping 46 months in oak, virtually all of it large cask. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2034. Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate # 187 Feb 2010

The Vietti’s have tended vines in Piedmont for more than 150 years and are blessed with some of the region’s finest vineyard sites. Assiduous attention in the vineyards is key here and the estate was a pioneer in single-vineyard Barolo.“In short, there seems to be no end to this estate’s ambition. Frankly, I wish there were more wineries setting their sights on this level of quality.” Antonio Galloni
