  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

    Extremely ripe berry aromas, with hints of flowers and minerals. Medium- to full-bodied, with pretty fruit, fine tannins and a medium finish.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Good full red. Complex, fruity aromas of dark cherry, plum, bitter chocolate and fresh herbs. Dense, sweet and impressively concentrated; perfectly integrated acids keep the flavors lively and shapely. Finishes with fine tannins and excellent persistence. Impressive basic Barolo.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

    The 1996 Barolo exhibits a saturated, not very evolved dark ruby color. It reveals notes of sur-maturite in its ripe, fruity style. The 1996 is broodingly backward, spicy, rich, and highly extracted.
