Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
At once silky and tannic, juicy and tart, powerful and refined, the ’11 Barolo Colonello Riserva dwells in tantalizing opposites. Pure, sweet red and blue fruits unfurl with new leather, medicinal herbs, crushed rose petals, peppery spices and licorice in this bewitching Barolo. Matching its sweet inner perfume with sturdy, chewy tannins and a mineral bass line, this muscular, elegant Barolo has the structure for the long haul--and a finish that lingers with complexity. Deriving from the historic four-acre Colonello vineyard (Prunotto, owned by the Antinori family, has a 2.5-acre plot), the grapes for this wine don’t move far from their source. Antinori built a tiny winery and tasting room in the center of their vineyard, so these traditionally vinified Nebbiolo grapes never see a truck--an extraordinary move for an extraordinary wine. Grapes are partially destemmed, then ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; the wine ages in cask for two years, stainless steel for one year, and in bottle for an additional 30 months before release.
