"91 WS Plum and spice aromas, with undertones of meat. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Needs time to mellow and come together. Very structured."
"95 Rating! James Suckling Extremely perfumed with roses, dark berries, ash, asphalt, and sliced plums. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a juicy, savory finish. Orange and lemon peel undertones. Gorgeous finish. Hard not to drink now. A beautiful wine. Drink or hold. But why wait?"
"Deep ruby red/garnet colour with orange reflections. Rich and opulent nose, with hints of dried roses and truffle. Dry, full-bodied, majestic, of great elegance."
"Medium red. Musky red plum and spices on the nose. Sweet, suave and fine-grained, with very good energy and ripe acidity giving shape to the red fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and noteworthy length. A lovely entry-level Barolo."
"93 Points- Wine Spectator. A little smoky reduction gives way to ripe raspberry, leather and spice flavors. Supple, yet firmly structured, with refined tannins on the finish. Should be enjoyable on the early side. Best from 2016 through 2028."
"An intensely fruity nose with lovely floral characteristics and a touch of lavender. The palate reveals rich red fruits and dried rose pedals backed by balanced acidity and bold tannins that will all come together beautifully with age."
