The 2010 Villero demonstrates remarkable approachability. Somewhat softer and riper than the other two Crus but still with the Barolo trademark structure of tannins and acidity, it is perhaps the concentration of sweet cherry fruit and floral notes here that gives it this accessibility. A classic Barolo all round with roses, tar and violets all featuring heavily on the palate. Enjoyable over the next few years after decanting and with food but also able to develop for a decade or two, much in line with the Cannubi.
Reviews & Scores
Riper and fruitier than their Cannubi. Still has the signature floral fragrance, but there is even more on the palate ? perfume, chocolate, violets, and tar ? the whole nine yards of Barolo. Fantastic. Score: 19/20 Richard Hemming (JancisRobinson.com)
