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.

Review:
Features a combination of cherry, spice, eucalyptus and woodsy notes, with buoyant fruit backed by beefy tannins. This changes constantly in the glass, boding well for the future. A dense, balanced red. Best from 2018 through 2032. 1,833 cases made.

Review:
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.
