AURELIO SETTIMO 2010 BAROLO: 92/100
The 2010 Barolo is a beautiful wine with a tight and tonic quality that comes forward in distinct pulses of cassis, wild berry, toasted almond and black licorice. No one element is out of place. Bright acidIty and finely-tuned tannins give the wine a clean, direct entry in the mouth with the good possibility of a slow and steady aging evolution. Drink: 2016-2028.
AURELIO SETTIMO 2010 BAROLO ROCCHE DELL’ANNUNZIATA: 94/100
The 2010 Barolo is a very nice surprise with some sweet almond (just a touch) next to traditional aromas. It is very satisfying, with pretty, dusty tannins, and showing big intensity. This is a real treat with some youthful sourness that needs to blow off with time. It is dusty, etched and showing very linear finesses. Drink: 2016-2030.
