Focused aromas of dark fruits and milk chocolate. Hazelnuts. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. This is powerful and toned. Give this until 2015.
The 2007 Barolo Percristina is another massive, sumptuous Barolo from Domenico Clerico. Sweet roses, dark red fruit and new leather are just some of the nuances that are woven into its rich, textured frame. Despite the ripeness of the vintage, the 2007 comes across as a rather delicate Percristina at this stage. Percristina is the only Barolo still made with 100% new oak and is now taking a direction that increasingly stands apart from the other Baroli here. (AG)
The 2007 Barolo Per Cristina was made in limited numbers (with 4,000 bottles produced) and spends five long years in barrique. It exhibits an unabashed and brazen attitude with full emphasis on opulent fruit richness. The wine's appearance and its mouthfeel are equally layered, rich and velvety. Massive aromas of dark fruit and spice make a fitting compliment. Soft tannins fill the palate, adding meaningful intensity and persistency. This is a beautiful effort that will appeal to Barolo enthusiasts and serious collectors alike. (ML)
Good full red. Deeply pitched nose offers raspberry, musky tobacco, leather and exotic white fruit notes. Lush, mellow and very ripe, displaying outstanding depth and energy for 2007 and complicating notes of menthol and marzipan. Classic Barolo in a more rustic style than the 2010s, but Clerico told me he prefers this kind of Barolo. Wonderfully sweet, gripping, still-youthful wine with dusty, building tannins supported by sheer depth of flavor. And a huge success for the vintage. (ST) 94+
