About

94

"It opens up to reveal layers of scents including tilled earth, underbrush, black berries, balsamic notes and baking spices. Juicy red cherry, black cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and cocoa flavors flow along the vibrant palate supported by a backbone of lively acidity and solid tannins. Drink after 2020. -KO" (10/14)

Product Description:

The 2010 Barolo vintage was outstanding, universally praised by virtually every wine critic and consumer who has tasted these magnificent wines.

Certainly the Barolos made by Giovanni Sordo will not disappoint! Sordo has become one of Wine Library's favorite Barolo producers, as his wines combine high quality with low price, the best of both worlds. Today, we offer Sordo's top-of-the-line 2010 Barolo from the prestigious Rocche di Castiglione vineyard - a 94 pointer by Wine Enthusiast.

This is a single vineyard cru, located in the "sweet spot" of Castiglione Falletto. You should expect more from this wine. And trust us, it delivers!

Many of the best characteristics of the 2010 Barolo vintage can be found in the 2010 Sordo Barolo Rocche di Castiglione. It's a wonderful Barolo at any price, ideal for pairing with traditional Italian cuisine and just as good drinking solo. Very highly recommended!

More about the wine:
"This wine impresses us for the hue, intensity, and the extraordinary beauty of its color. A beautiful set of garnets and rubies that illuminate the crystal goblet. Wine perfectly brilliant, that leaves traces vinous dense walls of glass. Its alcoholic strength is expressed as an abundant formation of arches and tears. We are surprised by the intensity, richness and great length of the bouquet. The characteristics of the grape varieties are enriched with extended sensations net and elegant that remind us of the ripe fruits of black cherries, blueberries and peach jam. Nuance floral "mountain hay" licorice and tobacco are giving way to those noble tertiary aromas that have formed, initially in oak casks of 15/20 hl. and subsequently reduced in the environment of the bottle. Vanilla and hints of wild berries and fine woods complement the olfactory sensations. On the palate we start a warm and enveloping. Evident but soft tannins and good acid presence enhances the structure of wine powerful, rich, suitable for long years of aging. In the mouth flavors of find even more intense, all the feelings that we had implemented the nose. Very long aromatic finish. In conclusion, we are, right now, in front of an austere wine and generous, important. A wine that does provide for a very long life. A sure promise for the future. A prestigious wine that will give its admirers feelings and memories that you will not forget so easily." - Winery
