However, Cordero di Montezemolo is not attempting to replicate anyone else's style. Instead, they want this Barolo to be more accessible, and that's not to say modern. This is a gorgeous 2010 Barolo with some of the darkest, haunting, and most alluring aromatics you are sure to find. On the palate, it is utterly CLASSIC. ✦ Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo enrico vi 2010 JS 96 » $99 "...Full body with fine yet chewy tannins and a long intense finish...Best wine ever from here..." (1558133) WhaT's old is neW: True Tr adiTional barolo F orty years ago, Barolo was always a blend of vineyards, a practice that produced wines of incredible balance and longevity. This was before single-vineyards came into style. However, the historic producers of Barolo have always continued to practice the tradition of blending. Today, critics and consumers are starting to realize that it wasn't such a bad idea in the first place. The Massolino Barolo is an example of Serralunga terroir at it's finest. Being a blend of vineyards, we are presented with a wine that is greater than the sum of its parts. It's also one of the best values of the vintage. ✦ Massolino Barolo 2010 AG 92 » $48 "...Readers who want to get a sense of what the 2010 vintage is all about will want to check out this fabulous effort from Massolino."
