97 points Decanter

After a long winter delayed bud break, the cool spring saw regular rainfall and the summer continued without extremes of temperature. Grapes were picked during the second half of October and given a 50 day maceration. Currently, the 2010 is an intriguing tangle of violet, lavender, pepper and mint. Minerally and textured, the palate is wound up in a firm, tannic grasp, boasting an unstoppable finish, both of which bode well for a long life. (MM)(10/2017)

96+ points Vinous

The 2010 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is going to need quite a bit of time to fully come together. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco and spices burst from the glass in an intense, structured Barolo that hits all the high notes. Next to the Ravera, the Bricco delle Viole is more floral, lifted and finessed, especially with time in the glass. Rose petals, savory herbs and sweet spices add the last nuance of complexity. The 2010 is fabulous; it's as simple as that. (AG) 96+ (9/2014)
