Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95(+?)

Good full red. Pure, high-pitched nose offers minerals, brown spices, Cuban tobacco and menthol. Powerful and deep, with strong minerality giving energy and sap to the wine. Perhaps best today on the sweet, lush back end, where the wine's minerality contributes to a rising, wonderfully long and fresh aftertaste. (Incidentally, an early look at the '05 suggests that the new vintage of this wine will also be a standout, but it was the floral, minerally '05 Rocche that most impressed me for its sheer intensity and sappiness in September.)

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2004 Barolo Lazzarito, from a vineyard in Serralunga, possesses superb depth in its ripe dark fruit, smoke, licorice, tar and sweet toasted oak. It too is a massive, powerful Barolo and the Serralunga terroir adds an extra dimension to the wine's brooding personality. Even though new oak has been reduced to 30%, the Lazzarito remains the estate's most modern Barolo.

Purple/ruby in color. The nose is complex with dusty cherries and some tar. Light tannins. Dried cherries on the palate. Tastes mature and ready to go.

About This Producer

Decades of experience as vineyard tenders in Barolo provided the Vietti family with priceless information when they decided to go into the winemaking business in the early 1900s. The firm recently acquired an additional 7 hectares of vineyards, bringing their holdings to a total of 31. Their link to the land has been the catalyst for their vineyard-designate bottlings, which showcase Barolo's diverse terroir. The wines' finesse belies their extraordinary depth and complexity; Vietti firmly adheres to the classic style that makes the wines of Piedmont such a revelation to those patient enough to cellar them.

Wine Varietal: Nebbiolo

Big, dark, and bold, Nebbiolo is a robust variety with heavy tannins and a sometimes bitter profile. While areas outside Italy (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, and South Africa) have begun cultivating Nebbiolo, the Italian region of Piedmont is where it reaches its greatest height. It is here, the historic home to Nebbiolo, where the finest Barolos and Barbarescos are produced. Many winemakers have compared this grape to Pinot Noir for its difficult growing habits and unpredictable cellar and aging behavior. Typical descriptors for Nebbiolo include roses, violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, and tobacco.
