96 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009

(bottled in August of 2009, with the 2007 barbera) Bright medium red. Captivating nose melds dark fruits, camphor, tobacco and dried flowers. Large-scaled, rich and sweet but juicy, with great energy and compelling inner-mouth perfume; this really builds in the mouth. Wonderfully primary and fresh Barolo that offers a rare combination of silky texture and underlying power-in the style of great old vintages from this producer but with perhaps even purer and more primary flavors. The very long, rising finish features big, broad dusty tannins; clean, sweet fruit; and superb grip. As this wine opened in the glass, my score kept going up.
