2010 G.D. Vajra "Bricco Delle Viole" Barolo

SKU #1163261 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark After a long winter delayed bud break, the cool spring saw regular rainfall and the summer continued without extremes of temperature. Grapes were picked during the second half of October and given a 50 day maceration. Currently, the 2010 is an intriguing tangle of violet, lavender, pepper and mint. Minerally and textured, the palate is wound up in a firm, tannic grasp, boasting an unstoppable finish, both of which bode well for a long life. (MM) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 96+, The 2010 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is going to need quite a bit of time to fully come together. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco and spices burst from the glass in an intense, structured Barolo that hits all the high notes. Next to the Ravera, the Bricco delle Viole is more floral, lifted and finessed, especially with time in the glass. Rose petals, savory herbs and sweet spices add the last nuance of complexity. The 2010 is fabulous; it's as simple as that. (AG) 96+ Inner quote mark (9/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The solid core and taut structure are coated with cherry and raspberry flavors. Though light-weight, this red is intense and long,with a firmly tannic finish. Very fresh in the end. Best from 2018 through 2032. (BS) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Barolo. Easy, fresh and lively even if not that distinct. Dry finish with sweet crystalline start and some pungent char notes and not shortage of autumnal fruit and firm tannins. Not heavy. A palate scrub. 18/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2014)
