vietti, barolo, lazzarito 2012
Rich, with a chewy texture and flavors of cherry, licorice, menthol, wild herbs and tar. Fresh, powerful and balanced, this should be terrific in due time. Best from 2020 through 2036.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This Barolo offers the trademark power and integrity that is so distinctive of wines made in Serralunga d'Alba. The 2012 Barolo Lazzarito delivers muscle, brawn, and an endearing sense of confidence and determination. The is a lovely interpretation that opens to dark fruit aromas that are sharply framed by spice, tobacco, tilled earth and cooling menthol. The overall effect is generous, well-structured and full-bodied. This wine is poised to age over the next twenty years.
