2010 Revello Barolo

In Barolo on August 19, 2014 at 11:55 am

revThe 2010 Revello Barolo opens with a nearly mind-blowing explosion of black cherries, plums, raspberries and rose petals that fills the room with its stunning aromas. Barolo is known for its tannin structure, and the tannins here are so seamlessly integrated that they create layers of superb detail—a fine delineation cut with clarity and precision. It’s almost if the Revello brothers have managed to capture the essence of cherries, raspberries and roses – a liqueur from each – and transmute it into the body of this exquisite wine.

In other words, drinking this Barolo is an otherworldly experience. And you don’t have to wait for that experience. This bad boy is ready to go now.

True, the wine has 30 more years of pleasure to give. But let me say it again – 2010 was a great vintage. It’s time to start your drinking. The Ravellos’ 2010 Barolo is ready to rock.

To Challenge the King: Barbaresco

Date: Wednesday, August 20
Time: 6 pm to 7:30
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $35 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase
Format: Seminar, RSVP required

Barolo is considered the king of wines and the wine of kings.  Yet less than 15 km away is the hillside of Barbaresco, which produces wines made from the same grape.  Does that 15 km change the grape so much?  Or is Barbaresco the steal of Piemonte, producing wines just as good but at half the price?

At this tasting we will challenge the king by exploring some of the greatest wines Barbaresco has to offer, all the while comparing them alongside Barolo’s best.
