The 2001 Barolo Vigna d'la Roul is the most classic of these 2001 Barolos. It reveals phenomenal balance in its layers of dark cherries, violets, tar, new leather, sweet toasted oak and mentholated, balsamic overtones that develop in the glass. This massively structured, large-scaled Barolo reveals an unusual amount of detail for such a big wine. It will require considerable patience, but will offer much pleasure to those who can wait. Vigna d'la Roul is the oldest of the family's holdings and was the principal component of many of the estate's legendary wines, including the 1978 Valentino Riserva. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2026.
This is very ripe and raisiny with loads of fruit and tobacco character. Full-bodied, chewy and smoky with meat and berry character. Impressive. Best after 2007.
Good medium red. Musky aromas of nutty oak, minerals and flowers. Juicy, penetrating and youthfully closed, with excellent clarity and grip. Very pure flavors of spices, minerals and mint. Finishes lively and very long, with firm tannic spine. 91(+?)
