90(+?)? Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2004
(the last vintage for this bottling, as the owner took back the vines after Fantino's lease expired) Medium red with a hint of amber. Aromas of nuts, marzipan, menthol and animal fur; not particularly fruit-driven. Then fat, sweet and lush, with a hint of red cherry liqueur. Shows the gentlest structure of Fantino's three 2001 Barolos, finishing rich and sweet, with very good length and chewy, ripe tannins.
