91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2007
($120) Medium red with an amber edge. Explosive, very expressive aromas of dried cherry, strawberry, mocha, earth, smoke and milk chocolate. Suave, clean and not at all cooked, with a compellingly chewy texture to the sweet, bright flavors of strawberry, truffle and underbrush. Sneaky acidity and dusty tannins give this very long wine a distinctly sappy finish. "Yes, it's atypically agreeable, but it would be a pity to drink this now," noted Maria-Teresa, who told me she did a somewhat shorter maceration than usual in 2003 and ultimately bottled just over half of her normal quantity of Barolo-and no magnums.
