Wine Enthusiast 91 Pts"Here's a meaty, masculine Barolo Riserva that is redolent of barbecue smoke, mesquite, teriyaki sauce, bresaola and candied fruit. There's a gritty, sandy quality to the tannins that would cut through roast pork stuffed with prunes. — M.L. "

vinous logo 250"(a blend of Torriglione and Rocche dell' Annunziata): Saturated deep red. Slightly funky aromas of red fruits, prune and old barrel; a bit porty. Then much fresher in the mouth, but still with some funky barrel notes to the red fruit and licorice flavors. Very ripe for 2006, with the oak notes giving the wine a high-toned quality. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins. - Stephen Tanzer "
