2010 is an outstanding vintage for Barolo. There are so many choices for your cellar, and frequently Barolo from great vintages is destined for the bottom of your cellar and long term aging. But not this one! The Fratelli Seghesio vineyards are in Monforte d’Alba, the center of the Barolo appellation, and they are famous for their Barolo crü La Villa. Additionally, they also make a wine from the younger vines and a portion of the vineyard facing to the south-east. This 2010 Seghesio Barolo DOCG is that product and is destined for drinking in the first 10+ years of its life. In great vintages like 2010 it is absolutely delicious and drinkable now. The nose is full of classic aromas: the ethereal rose petals, wild cherries and a hint of smoky underbrush; on your tongue the wine is supple, it still says Barolo with its palate presence as a veil of tannin brushes the inside of your mouth but the wine's luscious fruit is what centers its flavors. The warm, inviting flavors are balanced and smooth and make this wine so easy to drink - you’ll be reaching for a second bottle.
