#57 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
Deep ruby red in color. The nose has full, sweet, ripe red fruit, plum jam and sweet wood notes. Flavors are vigorous, quite soft, warm, tannic, fresh and persistent.
Try with grilled red meat or seasoned cheeses.
"Hinting at rose and eucalyptus, with a core of cherry and licorice, this sinewy red stays firm and tightly wound. The fruit is always skirting around the edges, matching sweetness against the tannins on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2035. 1,500 cases made. "
"The 2006 Barolo is once again impeccable. Nothing in particular really stands out here, instead the wine impresses with its superb harmony. Bouquet, fruit and structural elements come together beautifully in the glass, with everything balanced in just the right measure. The finish is long, pure and refined. Revello’s 2006 Barolo is easily one of the best entry-level Barolos readers are likely to come across. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018. "
The Wine Advocate
"Good deep red. Aromas of black cherry, tobacco and marzipan. At once silky and lively on the palate, with an almost candied quality to the strawberry and violet flavors. Firm acidity and a balsamic nuance give this wine good lift and energy. Aged entirely in barriques, 20% new. A very successful basic Barolo."

most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to
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...
