The rather perfumed nose exhibits roses, rose hips, orange pith, raspberries and dusty soil tones. In the mouth, one finds a rich, silky wine based on soft yet firm tannins. Superb layering of savory, soil and firm dark raspberry and cherry fruit flavors lead to a long finish that shows compellingly perfumed fruit. Packed with hints of orange rind, a little licorice and mint on the finish. 93pts

Medium-bodied with voluptuous plum fruit. As is so typical of Barbera, this is dangerously easy-drinking. A bottle for those who crave a red with substance without a highly tannic backbone.

Full deep red. Black raspberry coffee and smoky minerality on the nose. Sweet in the middle but youthfully closed hinting at dark fruits licorice and menthol. Shows a more rustic tannic structure than the Rocche and Villero bottlings today. This youthfully tough Barolo will need at least eight years of cellaring. 91(+?) Stephen Tanzers IWC.
