Vietti Barolo Lazzarito 2010
Wine AdvocateWith recently expanded acquisitions in this vineyard cru, the 2010 Barolo Lazzarito shows an expansive personality with pretty tones of crushed rose and red berry fruit that give the wine a delicate, feminine approach. Like the other wines in Luca's portfolio of new releases, this Barolo is years away from its prime drinking potential. The next ten years should see a steady evolution of aromas stemming from the spice, tar and licorice layers already on display despite the wine's young age. The mouthfeel is fine and polished with a great sense of purity and balanced freshness. Drink: 2018-2035.
Wine SpectatorTight and firm, with telltale tannins coating the cherry, plum, leather and tobacco flavors. Shows density and persistence, ending with a chalky sensation and lingering with fruit and spice notes. Built for the long haul. Best from 2018 through 2033. 500 cases made.
