2011 The Vinum Barolo DOCG




As with the Barbaresco, The Vinum Barolo is also of the highest quality – DOCG – and a favorite with wine critics.   The aforementioned James Suckling had this to say about The Vinum 2011 Barolo, to which he awarded 90 points:  “Lots of tar and rose aromas. Full body, silky and chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A compacted and young Barolo. Lovely now.”

90 points for The Vinum Barolo

This wine features 100% Nebbiolo grapes from Piedmont, sourced from vineyards high up on the slopes in La Morra.  Our tasting notes are as follows:  “Aromas of rose petal, cherry and raspberry, cinnamon, black pepper, and, with age, licorice, leather, and chocolate. This Barolo is one of those wines that surprises you when you taste it with its harmony of sophisticated and delicate flavors supported by an elegant acidity and ripe tannins.”
