Vanotu Barbaresco 2010
AVAILABLE IN 750ML BOTTLES
The Pelissero Vanotu has an intense ruby red colour and fruity notes of raspberries and cherries harmoniously combined with soft wooden sensations like that of vanilla. The nose starts with floral and herbal notes and soon captures your attention with deeper black fruit aromas. The palate continues these flavours and they are delivered harmoniously with impeccable balance and great length. It has silky tannins. It's an awesome wine from yet another great vintage for Giorgio.

>> "A beautifully, centered, polished wine the 2010 Barbaresco Vanotu impresses for its striking inner perfume and exceptional balance. In 2010, the Vanotu is impeccable and harmonious from the very first taste. Leather, licorice, mint and sweet spices resonate on the textured, inviting finish. The 2010 is unusually voluptuous for the year. Readers should give the 2010 another few years for the French oak to integrate. Giorgio Pelissero's wines have a way of coming together in bottle. I expect that will be the case here as well."

>> "The 2010 Barbaresco Vanotu is an extremely persuasive expression of Nebbiolo that opens to a dark, brooding color, thick concentration and an attractive dark garnet hue. The personality here is overtly savory and masculine with layers of cured meat and leather that support a wider offering of pressed cherries and tar. The generosity is outstanding. The only element out of place is the tannin that is spectacularly young at this point. This wine won’t show its best side for years more to come. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035."
