The 2001 Barolo Riserva Villero is the first of the truly great vintages for this wine. Layers of sweet, expressive fruit emerge from this exquisite, deep Barolo. Stylistically the 2001 is quite similar to the 1989 in its inner sweetness, but it has more depth and sheer textural richness. Firm yet beautifully integrated tannins frame the polished finish. This is a magnificent Barolo from Vietti. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.
