MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) • vISIT uS AT MORRELLWINE.cOM • cOMPLIMENTARy DELIvERy ON ALL ORDERS OvER $100 IN Ny AND cT 29 ITAly: BAROlO Ascheri Barolo Coste & Bricco 2010 $59 per bottle " Vibrant red berry, leather, white pepper, clove, violet, turned soil, mint and mineral sensations all come together on this structured but elegant wine. The creamy fruit is brightened by fresh acidity and supported by firm, velvety tannins. Made only in exceptional vintages, it shows a fantastic combination of power and finesse." WE 97 (1558119) Azelia Barolo Margheria 2010 $83 per bottle "...expressive dark fruit in a muscular, implosive Barolo...tremendous depth and intensity. With time in the glass the wine's inner perfume and sweetness begin to emerge, accompanied by expressive f loral and savory notes that add tons of pure appeal. The 2010 is going to require considerable patience, but there is a lot to look forward to." AG 96 (1558087) Azelia Barolo San Rocco 2010 $79 per bottle "A big, explosive wine, the 2010 blossoms in the glass with layers of deep, expressive fruit. The San Rocco is usually a wine of volume and breadth, at it is again in 2010. The firm Serralunga tannins are present, but they are also beautifully balanced. I can't wait to see how the 2010 develops." AG 96 (1558089) Cascina Fontana Barolo 2010 $59 per bottle "…Rich plum and cherry, spice, balsamic notes, dark floral rose, and crushed fall leaves…vibrant & surprisingly open for its youth, as notes of tart cherry and minerals are contrasted by ripe tannins…There's so much here to love here…" E. Guido (1558125) E Pira and Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Cannubi 2010 $105 per bottle "...subtle mint tones backed by f lowers, licorice stick and a touch of distant cinnamon...The finish is silky and clean with a touch of dried mint that is a trademark characteristic of this cru." WA 96 (1558084) E Pira and Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Mosconi 2010 $99 per bottle "The 2010 Barolo Mosconi, the estate's first wine from this south-facing site in Monforte, is showing beautifully today. In this cold, late-ripening vintage, the south exposition and richness typical of this site give the Mosconi a level of mid- palate pliancy and richness the other 2010 Barolos don't have...this is just about as good as it gets." AG 95 (1558085) Luigi Pira Barolo Marenca 2010 $70 per bottle "...Beautiful tones of crushed rose, balsam herb and cola that rise with confidence from the glass...secondary aromas of sweet spice and almond skin that help to f lesh out the bouquet...The wine hits the palate in a straight and determined manner. This is an exceptional wine with a long aging future." WA 94 (1558090) Cordero Di Montezemolo Barolo Enrico VI 2010 $90 per bottle "...One of the most beautiful wines I have tasted here in some time. Vivid and layered in the glass, the 2010 is all about polish...The Enrico VI is a wine of significant potential." AG 94+ (1558133) Paolo Scavino Barolo Monvigliero 2010 $70 per bottle "...The 2010 Barolo Monvigliero is beautifully expressive. Today the Monvigliero is incredibly primary and intense, especially in its fruit...With time in the glass some of the more floral and savory notes that are typical of this site begin to emerge, but only with great reluctance. Today the Monvigliero impresses for its texture, silkiness and exceptional overall balance." AG 95+ (1558109) Paolo Scavino Barolo Carobric 2010 $79 per bottle "Stands out for its focus and clarity...The 2010 Carobric is bright, aromatically lifted and gorgeous in its precision...This is one of the best vintages of Carobric I can recall tasting." AG 96 (1558082)
