2010 Barolo: Greatness in the Making

By Antonio Gallolini, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb. 2011)

The 2010 vintage in Barolo is shaping up to be a modern-day classic. The cool growing season produced transparent, vibrant Barolos that pulsate with tension, crystalline purity and site-specific nuance.

By James Suckling (former Senior Editor of Wine Spectator) (August 22th, 2014)

What strikes you about 2010 Barolos is how, despite being relatively delicate and refined, they manage to show a depth of flavor and structure that suggests excellence. The best of the vintage are truly world-class.

"An old-school style, this complex red features an array of cherry, berry, leather, tobacco and underbrush flavors, backed by a dense, beefy structure. Long and powerful, with a savory, saline aftertaste. Shows ample fruit up front, but should be better in two to three years. Best from 2019 through 2036. 550 cases made." – BS (Feb 28, 2017)

91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Fleshy red berry, rose, blue flower, mint and baking spice aromas take center stage. The racy palate is still somewhat closed but offers Morello cherry layered with white pepper, alpine herbs and spice alongside assertive tannins and nervous acidity. Young and tightly wound, this should evolve into a classic. Best after 2020.

"Tar, smoke, licorice, incense, blood orange and sweet spices are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2010 Barolo Cannubi Boschis. Today the 2010 is firing on all cylinders. The flavors are broad, rich and ample, with fabulous delineation, energy and class. A creamy, resonant finish laced with exotic floral and citrus notes only adds intrigue in this drop-dead gorgeous Barolo." -Antonio Galloni (January 2014)

"The 2010 Barolo Castiglione is beautiful in the way it brings together the vibrancy of the year with a soft, inviting textural presence. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet spices, anise and red berries are all woven together nicely in the glass. With time in the glass, the wine blossoms with exquisite finesse, floral aromatics and exquisite overall balance. Ripe, silky tannins support the exquisite finish. An insanely beautiful wine, the 2010 will give readers a good idea of just how great the 2010 vintage is at Vietti. The Barolo Castiglione is made from a large number of parcels across the Barolo zone, many of which are of a high enough level of quality that they could be bottled separately. This is first-class juice." - (Jan 2014)

"Crushed violet, rose, menthol, leather and balsamic notes lead the nose. The palate isn’t very expressive but reveals raw red cherry, thyme and sage alongside brisk acidity and firm tannins. Drink 2018–2038." - Kerin O’Keefe (10/1/2014)

Luigi Einaudi Barolo "Terlo" DOCG 2010 (Piedmont, Italy) - [AG 92] [ST 90]

92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2010 Barolo Terlo bursts from the glass with gorgeous energy and vibrancy. Freshly cut flowers, mint, crushed rocks and sweet red berries flesh out nicely. This is one of the more appealing and accessible 2010 Barolos readers will find for near and medium-term enjoyment. Much of that comes from a relatively short period of vinification (15-16 days), with no post-fermentation macerations, a choice that emphasizes fruit and soft tannins. Still this is a serious wine. Hints of leather, tobacco and dried flowers add complexity on the finish." -Antonio Galloni (January 2014)

94+ Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and leather are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass in Einaudi's 2010 Barolo Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi. Explosive and full-bodied to the core, the 2010 is a huge, intense wine endowed with tons of richness and sheer concentration. The 2010 is going to require significant patience. Today it is a bit bombastic, but hopefully finesse will develop in bottle. In the face of a cold vintage, Einaudi decided to basically trim the bunches in half in order to give the fruit the best chance to ripen. The resulting wine is massive yet also impeccably balanced." -Antonio Galloni (January 2014)
