Wine Spectator:

"There's sweet fruit on the nose, with lots of toasty oak, milk chocolate and lightly stewed fruit character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and fruit, vanilla and mineral flavors. Long and bright. Best after 2011. 540 cases made." - 92 Points - Wine Spectator

"The 2005 Barolo Albarella is soft-textured and generous in its minty, floral aromatics and sweet red fruit. This is another beautifully-balanced wine with elegant tannins and an approachable personality that is showing quite nicely today. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020."

"Oberto’s 2005 Barolos are among the softest, most approachable wines of the vintage, yet they offer lovely overall balance. The wines all underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak, where they spent about six months prior to being racked into a combination of smaller barrels (70%) and larger 16-hectoliter casks (30%) to finish their aging." -91 Points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate

This wine was also scored 89+ Points by Stephen Tanzer.
