Description

Piedmont, Italy Decanter 95 points! James Suckling 93 points! Vinum Vita Est Barolo is a beautiful expression of the Nebbiolo grape from Terre del Barolo in an extraordinary vintage for Barolo. The "Terre del Barolo" winery is located in the valley running between Alba and Barolo. The cooperative brings together around four hundred growers, who own approximately 650 hectares of the great vineyards of the Langhe. Aromas of juniper, violet, lavender, kirsch and iron mark this solid, densely built red. Shows a core of sweet, ripe fruit, but the structure is showing today as this winds down on the long, licorice, tar and underbrush finish. Aged 38 months, including at least 18 in wood. “Very attractive nose of ripe plums, dark cherries and dried roses. Quite rich, suave and concentrated, with fine-grained tannins and ample spice. Plenty of energy here, and will go the distance. Very long finish.”—Decanter 95 points! “A red with plenty of cherry and berry character. Some watermelon and strawberry, too. Fresh and floral. Medium to full body, firm and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. It’s bright and clean. Try after 2022.”—James Suckling 93 points! Enjoy Vinum Vita Est Barolo with osso buco, lasagna, veal chops and aged cheeses.
