Vigna Elena Barolo Riserva DOCG – 2007 – 96 Points, Top 100 Italian Wines of 2014 – jamessuckling.com
“My Top 100 Italian Wines in 2014 focus heavily on the wonderful 2010 vintage for Barolo, plus plenty of excellent 2011 Tuscans and many other outstanding wines from other areas. The 2010 vintage is a unique year for Barolo that highlights how an exceptional, long growing season in the Langhe can produced balanced but structured nebbiolos that are beautiful to drink now but will improve for years ahead.
