Winemaker's Notes

Garnet-red color, offering intriguing and dense impressions of violets, red fruits, cocoa and liquorice on the nose. Complex tannic texture, but emerging with a delicate soft finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Barolo Villero is less expressive and more closed in on itself than the Rocche, but that is to be expected. Sensual dark spices, menthol, minerals, black cherries and plums come together beautifully in this firm, old-style Barolo. The finish boasts considerable power and richness. Patience is the key, but the future certainly seems bright for the Villero. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2036. "
94 Points

"Round and velvety at first, displaying firm tannins underneath, with cherry and menthol flavors. A muscular, traditional style that needs time to absorb its tannins. Best from 2014 through 2030. 200 cases imported "

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
