Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

It's hard not to fall in love with the 2012 Barolo Brunate. This is an uneven vintage across the appellation, but Vietti has managed to harness the very best side of the grape during this growing season. The wine is densely concentrated and rich with black cherry, cassis and spice. It shows firm structure at the back with elegantly polished and fine-tuned tannins. The wine is almost approachable now (in another five years), but is more suitable for longer bottle aging.

Offers a mix of floral, cherry, raspberry, tobacco, earth and tar flavors, with oak spice. Starts out charming, tightening up on the firm finish. Finds balance. Elegant overall. Best from 2019 through 2033.
