91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013
(aged entirely in used 550-liter tonneaux): Bright medium red. Enticing perfume of raspberry, minerals, tobacco, dried flowers and red licorice are accented by a peppery nuance. Compellingly sweet and fine-grained, with pungent red raspberry and mineral flavors nicely framed by bright acidity. Highly aromatic nebbiolo from light, sandy soil in Roero. Finishes with dusty tannins and lovely lingering perfume. Has the balance to make delicious early drinking. (I also tasted the 2007 library release, which is the same wine that was released four years ago but with a special logo on the label. I found it more liqueur-like than my original bottle and drier on the finish, marginally disappointing at 89 points.)
