95 points Wine Spectator: "A mellow version, this exhibits plum, incense, floral, spice, menthol and tobacco aromas and flavors. Shows a spine of serious tannins, remaining harmonious and long. Delivers an extra kick on the aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2043."
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rose, woodland berry and balsamic aromas of eucalyptus and pine are front and center on this fragrant red. The full-bodied, compelling palate has structure and finesse, delivering red cherry, cranberry, licorice and orange zest set against a backbone of assertive but noble tannins. Drink 2025–2035."
Us: A beautiful bottle of Barolo, fragrant and perfumed, showing equal parts finesse and power. I'm surprised at how delicious it's showing already, even without decanting. A standout from my tasting trip to Piedmont in 2018. - Marcus
