Exuberant to the core, the 2012 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is one of the more immediate wines of the year. A rush of red berries, wild flowers, mint and sweet French oak hits the palate. There is lot to like in this racy Barolo. The new oak is a bit prominent, but the wine's depth and overall presence are both intriguing. While showy today, the 2012 will be even better in another year or two, once the tannins soften a bit further.
