TASTING NOTES

"Offers classic aromas of rose, cherry and tar, with hints of licorice and spice. As this plays out, a tobacco element comes to the fore, along with leafy, eucalyptus and mineral details. Very fresh and balanced, if tannic on the finish for now. Best from 2020 through 2035." Wine Spectator

"The 2012 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is pure class. A decidedly sensual, inviting Bricco delle Viole, the 2012 fleshes out in the glass with an effortless, inviting personality that is impossible to resist. Deep red cherry and plum notes open up first, followed by the classic floral notes that are so typical of this site. In 2012, the Bricco delle Viole is quite forward and fruit-driven, with essentially none of the angular contours that are typical when the wine is young. All of that means the 2012 will deliver immense pleasure pretty much upon release. There is so much to like here. The only real question is whether the 2012 will shut down in bottle or not. This is another addictively delicious Barolo from the Vajra family." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Barolo. Healthy mid ruby. Youthful and embryonic cherry and spice nose. Elegant mid weight palate with fine, yet still compact, cherry fruit. Rich, chewy tannins fitting the whole." JancisRobinson.com
