Lot #559. Bruno Giacosa Barolo Villero di Castiglione Falleto 1990

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 90 AG.
"The 1990 Barolo Villero emerges from the glass with a seductive, exotic array of perfumed red fruits. The 1990 offers a greater degree of ripeness and opulence than the more chiseled, delineated 1989, but it is very hard to pick a favorite among these two gorgeous Villeros. The level of density, length and volume here are simply remarkable. With time in the glass, the wine’s signature floral bouquet takes on greater prominence adding to the sense of harmony and elegance." Wine Advocate #187, Feb 2010
Provenance: The Marque Collection
Notes: Very lightly scuffed labels, #6672, 6684.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $550
