Elegant, with a supple texture backed by lively acidity, framing sour cherry, cocoa and tobacco flavors. Finishes with tannins and a hint of leather. Best from 2016 through 2026. 3,000 cases made. –BS

Claudio Icardi's 2010 Barolo Parej is one of the more accessible wines of the vintage. Rose petal, spice, cinnamon, plum and game notes all flesh out in the glass in an inviting, textured Barolo with good length and plenty of personality. The tension and acidity of the vintage are tempered by the softness of the fruit, but they kick on the finish. This deceptively mid-weight 2010 Barolo could use another few years for the tannins to soften a touch.
