Tasting Notes

What a difference a year can make. The 2010 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is one of the greatest wines ever from this small, family-run estate. Perfumed, sensual and totally alluring in the glass, the 2010 Rionda is captivating from the very first taste. The flavors are crystalline and precise throughout. Hints of lavender, violets, hard candy and spices gradually open up, but above all else, the 2010 Rionda is a wine of pure, hauntingly beautiful finesse. Personally, I can't wait to own the 2010 and follow it for the next several decades.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2015

A beautiful wine with lavender, cedar, sandalwood and blueberry character. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Wonderful finesse and structure to this Drink or hold.
