Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2010 Barolo Albe is a brawny and masculine wine with a thick bouquet that is enriched with dried fruit, fig, Indian spice, leather and chewing tobacco. Tertiary aromas have set in to add licorice, tar and crushed white pepper. Spice and clove appear on the close. This is a richly textured Nebbiolo that can be enjoyed within the next few years. Or, you could hold it longer.
