Valentino Barolo Vigna d' La Roul 2001

Valentino Barolo Vigna d' La Roul 750ML 2001       
Sku: 11951

Obtained with 100% Nebbiolo grapes from the vineyard located at Manzoni Soprani, this wine is named after the huge oak tree in the middle of the estate. It is ruby red in color; it has a rich and persistent perfume, with violet, withered rose and goudron scents. The palate is full bodied with austere tannins. It is doubtless the most vigorous wine of our range.

 Wine Advocate 95 points (Oct 2007)
The 2001 Barolo Vigna d’la Roul is the most classic of these 2001 Barolos. It reveals phenomenal balance in its layers of dark cherries, violets, tar, new leather, sweet toasted oak and mentholated, balsamic overtones that develop in the glass. This massively structured, large-scaled Barolo reveals an unusual amount of detail for such a big wine. It will require considerable patience, but will offer much pleasure to those who can wait. Vigna d’la Roul is the oldest of the family’s holdings and was the principal component of many of the estate’s legendary wines, including the 1978 Valentino Riserva. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2026.
 Wine Spectator 92 points (Oct 15 2005)
This is very ripe and raisiny with loads of fruit and tobacco character. Full-bodied, chewy and smoky with meat and berry character. Impressive. Best after 2007. 1,100 cases made. –JS
