Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2012 saw a ripe, tempestuous year in the Langhe, but it made for a fascinating, multi-layered Barolo Colonnello Riserva from Prunotto. This Barolo bursts from the glass with a mélange of intriguing notes--ripe red and blue fruits, blood orange, cypress needles, worn leather, dried rose petals, tarry earth, and cigar wrapper, to name but a few. Polished, chewy tannins meld seamlessly with the wine’s taut acidity, as copious dry extract finds its match in an ethereal perfume. The ‘12 Barolo Colonnello Riserva feels both restrained and a little exotic, and it holds its drinker in its tensions as it slides to its resonant finish. Deriving from the historic four-acre Colonnello vineyard (Prunotto, owned by the Antinori family, has a 2.5-acre plot), the grapes are partially destemmed, then ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; the wine ages in cask for around three years, then in bottle for an additional 30 months before release.
