"The 2006 Barolo offers up a super-classic profile of tar, roses, raspberries and licorice, all wrapped around a firm core of tannins. Fresh and vibrant throughout, the Barolo impresses for its superb balance and poise. Deceptively medium in body, the wine's richness sneaks up on the mid-palate, gaining more and more volume through to the finish. There is the subtlest hint of French oak that points to the slightly updated style the estate is going for with this bottling, but not enough to detract from the classic feel. This is a magnificent, impeccable Barolo from Pio Cesare, but it will be even better in a few years. The estate's Barolo is made from a number of vineyards in Serralunga, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra and Novello, and other villages. The wine is aged mostly in cask, although 30% sees French oak."

"Sweet and spicy, displaying a viscous texture that envelops the cherry, menthol and allspice notes. Firm, upright tannins on the finish keep this honest, and the spice lingers, along with notes of mineral. Needs time. Best from 2013 through 2030. 2,630 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The nose is jam packed with strawberries, spice, and flowers. The palate is full and very soft with round tannins. Strawberries, dried flowers, and chocolate notes on the finish. Drinking great right now, pull the cork." JamesSuckling.com
