"94 Rating! eRobert Parker Delivers youthfulness and brightness with bold cherry fruit flavors, cassis, spice and mild cola. The wine excels in the mouth where it shows a great degree of roundness and suppleness. Costa Russi is Nebbiolo with a tiny addition of Barbera. Drink: 2018-2038."
"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?"
"97 Rating! James Suckling What a decadent nose of white truffles, meat and game with dark fruits too. Full body, chewy and round tannins and great depth of fruit. Layered texture. Very long and intense. Better in 2017."
"94 Points- Wine Advocate. From one of La Morra's smallest crus (on the border with the Barolo township), the 2010 Barolo Fossati is a wine of big intensity and depth. The wine gains speed with blackberry, cassis, tar, licorice and white truffle aromas. It shows a rich textural fabric that is polished and taut. This vintage is characterized by wines that deliver both elegance and power. You definitely get both here."
"98 Rating! James Suckling Superb aromas of dark fruit such as plums and berries with hints of white truffles. Fresh roses too. Full body, velvety tannins, yet firm and full of tension. Love the lemon and orange aftertaste. Great finish. Better in 2017."
"96 Rating! eRobertParker Delivers a broad approach to the bouquet with bold flavors of red fruit, spice and milk chocolate that caress the palate. The wine sports a broad frame with beautiful fruit filling at its core. The tannins in Sperss are very firm and structured and this wine wont be ready for five to ten more years. Drink: 2018-2040."
"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."
"95 Points- James Suckling. This is a young Barolo that builds on the palate with super silky tannins and fantastic pure and delicious fruit. Hints of hazelnut, plum and dark berry character. Full and polished tannins. Better in 2019 but so delicious now."
