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 31 TOP Value in 2010 baROlO TOday t he name Vietti has become synonymous with Piedmont and Barolo. With each passing vintage, the scores and demand continue to go up for their stunning portfolio of single vineyard Barolo, firmly placing Vietti as one of the absolute top wineries in Piedmont today. Through the guidance and talents of Luca Currado, this family estate has created a vinous legacy of classic wines to last the ages. Year in and year out, the Vietti Barolo Castiglione is one of the best values in the region which receives fruit from a number of esteemed vineyards. Most producers would bottle these and sell them as cru wines at twice the price. However, Vietti is more concerned with having a Barolo in their portfolio which is within reach of all Piedmont enthusiasts. Each parcel which feeds the blend of Castiglione is treated the same way as the single vineyard, top-shelf wines from Vietti. The only difference is that they are finally blended to create a classically-styled, elegant Barolo with serious aging potential. This is a Barolo to buy in every vintage--and in a vintage as great as 2010, it's worth buying by the case. ✦ Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2010 $49 per bottle "An insanely beautiful wine, the 2010 will give readers a good idea of just how great the 2010 vintage is at Vietti." AG 94 (1558099) undeR The RadaR, buT nOT fOR lOng f rancesco Rinaldi Barolo Le Brunate is a classic expression of Barolo and the underlying terroir of the vineyard. It's a wine for the ages with incredible depth, power and balance. With the classic, cool vintage of 2010, this is sure to mature effortlessly and will one day take its place as one of the greatest expressions of Francesco Rinaldi Le Brunate that we've ever seen--and at only $67 a bottle. ✦ Francesco Rinaldi & Figli Barolo Le Brunate 2010 $67 per bottle "The 2010 Barolo Le Brunate is the most dynamic and textured of these wines. Dark cherry, plum, smoke and violet notes f lesh out in a firm, muscular Barolo endowed with tons of classic Brunate nuance. The f lavors are intense, dark and bold. Balsamic overtones develop in the glass, adding further shades of nuance and complexity. Today, the Brunate is reticent and austere. Readers who can wait will be rewarded with an exquisite Barolo."
