Layers of exotic spices and dark fruit caress the palate, eliminating virtually any sensation of tannin. The 2008 is an unusually fleshy, expressive Villero loaded with class and personality. Dark plums, menthol and a host of balsamic aromas and flavors wrap around the finish. The Villero is a bit rounder and fleshier than the Rocche today, but it is just as gorgeous. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038.

Cherry, earth, cocoa powder and dried flowers on the lightly medicinal nose; a more liqueur-like cherry aroma emerged with aeration. High-pitched, minerally and fine-grained, with terrific depth to its medicinal dark cherry and floral flavors. A classic, primary Barolo with superb tannins and outstanding persistence. 93+
