This beautiful Barolo stuns with heady scents of rose, violet, ripe red berry and white pepper. Showing great precision and utterly delicious, the focused, structured palate doles out ripe red berry, wild strawberry, licorice, and the same white pepper note from the nose along with sage and almost salty mineral notes. It’s youthfully tense but well balanced, boasting tightly wound, refined tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink 2029–2049. Abv: 14.5%

With fruit from one of the top growing sites in Castiglione Falletto, the 2019 Barolo Villero shows a slightly ripe and soft side with cherry and dried raspberry followed by licorice, tar and rusty metal. This is an elegant expression, with a terrific sense of focus, that delivers complexity and depth, especially in this excellent vintage. Only 5,000 bottles were released.
Elena Brovia and Alex Sanchez delivered an exceptional set of new releases. They also have some exciting news to report, including the acquisition of two parcels in Serralunga d'Alba. The 2019 Dolcetto d'Alba Solatio (which I did not taste) is being reintroduced after being out of the market since the 2009 vintage, and there is a new Metodo Classico sparkling wine in the works.
