Reviews and Ratings
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby in colour with deep aromas of dried herbs, old leather, and dried black cherry. The taste is quite balanced, with primarily a dried berry flavour. Lots of fairly grippy tannins and high acidity. In a few years this will be an extremely silky, well-balanced wine. For now, try it with hard cheeses, or rare, fatty meats or stew.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
A sumptuous Barolo from Piedmont, Italy, with aromas and rich flavours of dark fruit, toffee, herbal hints and a touch of smoke. Full-bodied, velvety mouthfeel, firm tannins and long elegant finish. Will benefit from cellaring, up to 20 years.

Colors never overly intense, beautiful colors and very stable in fruity, full-bodied, with a very balanced presence of acids and tannins; this last They are important and slightly sweet. It 'a very long-lived wine that after a suitable aging acquires good race, very elegant, strong and remarkable minerality
