    Winemaker's Notes:

    Barolo Brunate is intense ruby red. It is dry, with generous body that is harmoniously balanced and velvety in texture. There are notes of spices, violet, plums and intense tar - very typical for the Brunate vineyard. Plus, classic, ripe red-fruit flavors and a long finish, rich, very elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    From one of the region’s most celebrated vineyards, the 2009 Barolo Brunate lavishes on smoky, granite and mineral notes that make this wine absolutely irresistible. Even the drawing of a snail on the label seems to hammer home one obvious point: This wine is built for longer cellar aging. Its rich texture, velvety feel and firm structure are guarantees that it will become increasingly elegant and finessed with time. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

    Wonderful depth of ripe fruit on the nose with a purity and freshness. Full body, with integrated tannins and a caressing mouthfeel. Pretty fruit character. Brunate made excellent wines in 2009. Better in 2015.

    James Suckling

    One of the standouts of this challenging vintage, the 2009 Barolo Brunate is sweet, layered and pretty from start to finish. Dark red cherries, menthol, spices and tobacco are all woven together in this gracious, radiant Barolo. Like so many 2009s, Vietti's Brunate is a bit restrained relative to its historical standard, but in the last few months, the wine has begun to blossom nicely, showing more and more Brunate character with time.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Good deep red. Ineffable, deeply pitched aromas of raspberry, smoke, dried flowers, mocha, mint, menthol and minerals. Then much less forthcoming on the palate, with dark soil-driven flavors of dried fruits dominating. There's a deep sweetness here but the fruit flavors are not yet expressing themselves. Finishes with serious tannins that reach the front teeth. The hot-vintage character is obvious here but this highly concentrated wine avoids coming off as dry.

    A pretty red, offering delicate floral and red berry aromas, with tobacco and briar notes matched to an elegant frame. The firm tannins mesh well, giving this a balanced impression overall. Best from 2016 through 2027.
