"Aromas of toasted oak, espresso and vanilla slowly emerge from the glass. The dense palate shows cherry marinated in spirits, clove and roasted coffee bean alongside bracing, astringent tannins that leave a drying finish. Drink after 2022. - KERIN O’KEEFE"

"Representing a stylistic departure with the past, this edition of Barolo Torriglione offers enormous density and richness lavished over a core of ripe fruit, chocolate, spice and cola. You'll enjoy the wonderful fullness in the mouth and the spicy, fresh close. — M.L." 2007 vintage rated 93 points with Wine Enthusiast
"This has intense forest-floor aromas, a hint of violet along and toasted oak and vanilla notes. The palate shows bright raspberry and espresso flavors, nervous acidity and firm tannins. It needs time, so drink after 2016. — K.O." - Wine Enthusiast (September 2013), 88 pts
