2000 Vietti Barolo Brunate (Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo)

Barolo, Italy, Langhe, Nebbiolo, Piedmont, Red Wine

Heaven in a bottle. I took this to a restaurant, and the waitress who opened the wine immediately said that it ‘smelled so amazing’. On the young side, still, but what a great wine. Floral and pretty with violets and roses, earth, a touch of balsamico perfume. Meaty and with plum and cherry fruit that just doesn’t quit. I was trying to figure out whether it was a modern or traditional style of Barolo, and I decided it was right in the middle. Nice fruit, but still restrained and finesse driven. This one has it all. Great freshness, pretty fruit, long finish, solid structure, a nose to die for, and plenty of aging potential. If you own some of these, you’ll be happy when you decide to open one.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
