2010 Elio Altare "Arborina" Barolo

SKU #1453823 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Barolo Arborina shows a strong fruit profile with cherry and cassis that sets it apart from the 2009 vintage that is extremely generous in floral tones of crushed flower and rose. This expression shows great power and substance with 20 to 30% new oak. This is a precise and sharp wine with a heightened sense of focus and definition that is backed by pretty mineral shadings. Hold this wine ten years or more. Drink: 2017-2035. (ML) 96+  (6/2014)

95 points Vinous

 Altare's 2010 Barolo Arborina bristles on the palate with striking energy and finesse. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet spices, licorice and rose petals all meld together in a layered, impeccable Barolo loaded with class. The flavors are bright, chiseled and beautifully nuanced. The 2010 finishes with marvelous freshness and tons of saline-infused nuances. (AG)  (1/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good bright, deep red. Lovely floral lift to the aromas of redcurrant, mocha and nutty oak. Sweet, sappy and intense, conveying a light touch and terrific inner-mouth energy to the redcurrant and cherry flavors. Finishes chewy and very long, with a distinctly saline character and lovely floral lift and verve. This youthfully tight wine has the balance, stuffing and spine for a graceful evolution in bottle.

 Dark crimson. Elegant, high-toned nose. Nicely balanced with lots of fruit and electric energy. Marked acidity and persistence. 18/20 points. (JR)  (11/2014)
