90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
(bottled in June of 2011; aged in larger barrels; includes some declassified wine from the family's crus): Wild aromas of camphor, mocha, coffee, wild herbs and earth; distinctly less fruity than the 2008 Barolos here. Lush, velvety and fine-grained; nicely fresh but not currently showing the energy of the top 2008s. Rich and long but a bit disjointed at present, in need of two or three years of patience. This blend includes a lot of wine from 25-year-old Ca' Mia vines; the Ca' Mia bottling itself is from 55-year-old vines.
