A Great Barolo Vintage 2010: Cause for Celebration

Tom Maresca

Here’s a giant piece of very good news for Nebbiolo lovers: The just-now-coming-on-to-the-market 2010 bottles contain the best vintage of Barolo since 2004 — even better than 2004, in the opinion of some producers. I concur with that: The best 2010 Barolos have thrilling Nebbiolo fruit, as clean and pure as I have ever tasted, combined with the kind of structure that presages a long, long life. And like the 2004 vintage, 2010 Barolo seems to be accessible and drinkable from the get-go. The hardest thing about this vintage will be to leave it to mature and not to drink it up too young.
