Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2008 Barolo emerges from the glass with juicy dark berries, sweet spices, tobacco and incense, all in a mediumbodied style that is quite appealing. The 2008 shows the personality of the year in a fairly approachable style. The 2008 finishes with lovely vinous energy but ultimately it is a bit simple. Anticipated maturity: 20152020."

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
"Pale red with an amber edge. Sour cherry, rose petal, camphor and spices on the nose. Vibrant and suave in the mouth, offering a restrained sweetness and good balancing acidity. Builds nicely on the back end, finishing with nobler tannins than the 2008 Barbaresco normale."

Wine Enthusiast
"This opens with bold intensity and delicate background tones of dried cassis, cola, licorice and cedar. It's a dry but exceedingly delicate wine with a fine texture and polished tannins."
89 Points
Wine Spectator
"Rich and round despite the dense tannins, this red is laced with cherry, strawberry, tar and spice flavors. Elegant, boasting a formidable structure and a dry finish. Best from 2016 through 2032. 1,000 cases imported."

James Suckling
"The citrusfruit and driedstrawberry character comes out clearly on the nose and palate. Undertones of roses. Medium to full body with fine tannins and a tagy finish. Suble and refined with outstanding length. Better in 2014, to come together."
