A powerhouse, this is packed with cherry, plum, licorice, soy, menthol and mineral aromas and flavors. Tightly coiled, with energy and a vibrant profile that drives the long finish. Fine balance. Best from 2022 through 2038. 500 cases made.

This is such a gorgeous wine. The 2010 Barolo Riserva Runcot is undeniably beautiful and profound. It's almost hard to know where to start. The wine's appearance is velvety and rich. The bouquet opens to a long playlist of distinct characteristics that immediately remind you of the Langhe. You'll recognize wild cherry with licorice, white truffle, balsam herb and toasted hazelnut. These tones are delivered with just the right intensity. The are compelling, but never overwhelming. The finish offers an exciting succession of tiny detailing. The wine moves over the palate with silky intensity, imparting mineral tones of flint and campfire ash along the way. The persistence can be counted in many long, pleasurable minutes.
