Reviews:

2010 Barolo Villero – 92-94 Points – Vinous Media (Nov 2013)
“Good full medium red. Aromas of candied raspberry, violet and flinty minerality. Juicy and tightly wound but with insidious sweetness to its youthful red fruit flavors. Wonderfully fine-grained, perfumed wine with firm but harmonious tannic spice and excellent energy.” ~ S.T.
