From one of the most hallowed vineyard sites in Barolo, this structured, compelling wine opens with aromas of ripe black cherry, leather, anisette, cooking spices and balsamic notes. The vibrant palate weaves together dark cherry, black raspberry, licorice, mint and black pepper alongside brooding, bracing tannins. It's already impressive but will continue to evolve for decades. Drink 2018-2033. *Cellar Selection, #20 Top Wines of 2014* (KO)
Fresh still with herbal-toned, ripe fruit aromas. Juicy fruit on the palate with developing notes of chocolate and spice. Excellent harmony and structure. Glorious now, will improve and could keep for another 20 years. Drinking window 2020-2035. (MG)
The 2008 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda presents a classic palette of Rionda notes: rose petal, violets, savory herbs, mint and sweet spices. Dark, layered and beautifully perfumed throughout, the 2008 is compelling, even if it is naturally a bit compact at this stage. Here the tannin is a bit more firm than in the super-polished 2010. Needless to say, it will be interesting to follow the development of both wines over the coming decades. (AG)
Elegant and refined, exhibiting cherry, eucalyptus, tobacco and underbrush flavors. Savory and harmonious, with an underlying beam of tannins and brisk acidity. A mineral element emerges on the finish. This is coming together nicely, but still needs time. Best from 2016 through 2030. 150 cases imported. (BS)
Just mid ruby beginning to show some orange on the rim. Sweet, fragrant, almost heady nose but not alcoholic. There is density of fruit on the nose. Loads of chewy tannins and succulent fruit on the palate. 17/20 points. (WS)
