2010 Barolo Vigne Vecchie “Cascina Dardi”

A. & G. Fantino

2010 Barolo Vigne Vecchie “Cascina Dardi” A. & G. Fantino - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Traditional lore in Piemonte's Langhe hills dictates that the best sites to plant Nebbiolo are those where the snow melts first. These are generally south-facing hillsides, where an abundance of direct sun ripens Nebbiolo to its fullest. The Bussia vineyard-and especially the Dardi subsection, home to the Fantino brothers' holdings­undoubtedly represents one of the warmer crus in the Barolo zone, its steep grade and southern exposure ensuring maximum sunshine each vintage. The excellent situation of Bussia and the brothers' expert touch yields a Barolo with the best of all worlds: great typicity, soaring aromatics, fine structure, loads of complexity... While it certainly has classic grippy tannins and firm acidity, its powerful core seems concealed behind a silkiness of fruit that is uncommon for the King of Wines when young. It can be held for many years, but the generous aroma and soft edges make this young Barolo hard to resist. –Anthony Lynch
