Notes from the Winemaker:

Single-vineyard from the Serralunga cru, renowned for its structure. Ideally incarnates the breeding and magnitude of its category: full-bodied, complex, utterly classic. In top vintages, can be cellared as long as 15-25 years.

Tasting Notes:
Intense garnet w/ruby hues; ample, elegant bouquet of underbrush, dried roses, ripe fruit, floral + spicy notes, extremely well integrated. V. full-bodied, silky texture, intense flavors, perfectly balanced components, sweet tannins. Best to decant it 1 hr beforehand and pair with rich, structured, important dishes.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Antonio Galloni Vinous:
"Ca’ Rome’s 2010 Barolo Rapèt is floral, delicate and quite accessible for the year. Sweet red berries, tobacco, anise and savory herbs develop in the glass over time in a medium-bodied, fragrant Barolo with tons of near-term appeal. Today, the 2010 impresses for its punchy, bright fruit and terrific overall balance." -Antonio Galloni (January 2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The full bodied 2010 Barolo Rapet shows an impressive degree of layering and aromatic dimension with sweet cherry and exotic spice followed by dried herb, rosemary and rosebud. There's a significant mineral contribution as well with rusty notes of wet soil and terracotta. The tannins show a spot of firm astringency that is common in the wines of Serralunga d'Alba. Drink: 2017-2028." -Monica Larner (July 2014)
