Critic Notes

The 2010 Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata is simply gorgeous and one of the best wines ever produced by Andrea Oberto. You’ll notice that the wine now carries the full name of the vineyard cru, Rocche dell’Annunziata. In years past, this wine was the boldest in this producer’s portfolio and that fact certainly has not changed in the delicious 2010 vintage. Behind the brawn is elegance, finesse and impressive complexity. Dried cherry, cola, licorice and balsam herb give the bouquet an ever-changing quality that keeps you on your toes. Alcoholic power, acidity and structure drive the wine over the palate. Drink: 2017-2033. Jun 2014, www.robertparker.com

A beautifully balanced, refined 2010 Barolo with integrated tannins, a medium to full body and a savory finish. Better after 2015 but already delicious. Apr 2014, JamesSuckling.com

Barolo Vineyard Following a vintage like 2010 is not easy.  2010 Barolos are not only of great quality, they were released to a market primed to buy something new, a market disillusioned with Bordeaux, a market looking for quality, value and character.  What the wines of Piedmont offered, and continue to offer is simple: the opportunity to buy, own ...

The Sub-Regions of Barolo and their very different flavour profiles
Why is it important? Understanding the sub regions of Barolo is really worth some investigation because generally speaking each of the communes have a distinct flavour profile clearly differentiating its terroir from its neighbours. Many consumers are unaware of the different profiles and can be quite surprised by the Barolo in their glass tasting very different to the one they ...
