91(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
Moderately saturated medium red. Classic austere Barolo aromas of black cherry, menthol, mint and dark chocolate, with a liqueur-like suggestion of the vintage. Very rich and sweet, with superripe flavors of dark berries and spices. A high-toned, rather old-style Barolo, finishing with huge but ripe tannins and a slightly clenched quality. Compared to the Villero, this seems much more dominated by the vintage. Will it hold its fruit with extended bottle aging?
