Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Sporting the lighter red shade of Nebbiolo, this Barolo offers up rose petal, sour cherry, truffle, and some earthy minerality. Massive tannins, hugely grippy and demanding of food, or a prime position in the long-term aging section of the cellar. Beyond the tannins, there is a healthy body and racy acidity. Wild game wine, so consider goose, duck, or venison. While Barolos typically command high prices, there is good value in this product.
Rebecca Meir-Liebman rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

San Silvestro Barolo is seductive from its first approach - I adore the appealing rose-nose that it has! The appearance of the wine is quite translucent, which is very typical with the Nebbiolo grape variety. A traditional, old-world style of Italian Barolo, this wine has evident tannins that dance playfully with a delicate, berry fruitiness. Let it sit for years - it will progressively develop and mature gracefully. Therefore, this Barolo is definitely worth the price.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Red brick colour in the glass. Notes of warm hay on a slightly medicinal nose. Black cherry on the fairly vibrant palate. Medium tannins. Medium plus finish. Not bad considering 2014 was a challenging year for Barolos. Serve with Saltimbocca. Tasted July 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
