2001 Rocche dei Manzoni "Vigna d'la Roul" Barolo

SKU #1069879 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001 Barolo Vigna d'la Roul is the most classic of these 2001 Barolos. It reveals phenomenal balance in its layers of dark cherries, violets, tar, new leather, sweet toasted oak and mentholated, balsamic overtones that develop in the glass. This massively structured, large-scaled Barolo reveals an unusual amount of detail for such a big wine. It will require considerable patience, but will offer much pleasure to those who can wait. Vigna d'la Roul is the oldest of the family's holdings and was the principal component of many of the estate's legendary wines, including the 1978 Valentino Riserva. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2026. Inner quote mark (10/2007)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is very ripe and raisiny with loads of fruit and tobacco character. Full-bodied, chewy and smoky with meat and berry character. Impressive. Best after 2007. Inner quote mark (10/2005)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium red. Musky aromas of nutty oak, minerals and flowers. Juicy, penetrating and youthfully closed, with excellent clarity and grip. Very pure flavors of spices, minerals and mint. Finishes lively and very long, with firm tannic spine. 91(+?) Inner quote mark (12/2004)

K&L Notes

Valentino Migliorini, dynamic owner of this winery, makes big wines with classic structure, spice and is a big believer in barrique (small French oak barrels). This wine is no exception, a harmonious blend of intrigue, depth, structure and finish, a blend of old world and new world.
