92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2009
($186) Good full medium red. Deeper, more important aromas of black cherry, strawberry and minerals; more primary and brooding than the normale Bigger and richer too, with a creamier texture and an almost chocolatey character that carries through to the aftertaste. More complex but less fruity than the basic Barolo, with more apparent minerality. Quite silky in texture thanks to firm but well-integrated acidity. Most impressive today on the back end, which is long and scented, with a delicate but very persistent flavor of almost candied small red fruits.
