We are thrilled for our friend Luca Currado on his “out of this world” success in 2010 — His endless curiosity, energy and impetus to improve what is already outstanding has resulted in these stunning Barolos. Bravo!

2010 VIETTI Barolo Rocche 99 pts $155

“A wine of exquisite beauty, the 2010 Barolo Rocche is pure silk  on the palate. The 2010 is incredibly dense, dark and powerful  for a young Rocche. With time in the glass, the Rocche opens up nicely, showing the full breadth of its potential and pedigree. Stunning in the glass and impeccable throughout, the 2010 Rocche is firing on all cylinders. Sweet rose petals, mint, spices and licorice are woven into the breathtaking, perfumed finish. 99 pts.” — Vinous

2010 VIETTI Barolo Brunate 97 pts $155

“Dark red fruit, iron, new leather and smoke all jump from the 2010 Barolo Brunate. A huge, dense, powerful Barolo, the vietti brunate2010 Brunate boasts stunning depth and sheer richness. At the same time, though, it is incredibly polished for such a big wine. The Brunate brings together the power of the Lazzarito, but with a greater sense of textural polish and finesse that is typical of the Rocche. In 2010, the Brunate is all about balance and harmony. 97 pts.” – Vinous

2010 VIETTI Barolo Lazzarito 96 pts $155

The 2010 Barolo Lazzarito is impeccably polished, silky and refined, especially for a Serralunga Barolo. Mint, violets, black fruit, smoke and deep layers of spices are some of the mavietti lazzaritony notes that flesh out on the inviting, textured finish. Today, the Lazzarito is incredibly primary to the point of being raw and undeveloped, but it is explosive, bursting with energy and flat-out great. This is also the first recent vintage I can remember tasting where the French oak is more in line with the other single-vineyard Barolos. 96 pts.” — Vinous
