Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 2010 Barolo Ciabot Mentin opens to a deep, dark color and tarry aromas of dark fruit and liquid smoke. The use of oak is bold but contained, adding extra layering to the supple finish. The power and elegance of the vintage comes though at this early stage although the wine clearly needs more time to evolve. Drink: 2017-2030. (Monica Larner)

Good full red. Liqueur-like plum and black cherry on the nose. Then fine-grained and classy but tightly wound, showing utterly primary flavors of cherry, red berries and menthol. There's no way into this extremely backward wine today. But it has the racy acidity and excellent clarity for a spectacular evolution in bottle. (vinous.com)

This is a very pretty 2010 Barolo with very fine tannins, fresh fruit and hints of minerals. Medium to full body, delicately fruity finish. Give it until 2016 to soften the tannins a little.
