Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2008 Barolo is impressive in this vintage. It bursts from the glass with tons of richness and concentration for the year. Dark red fruit, flowers and licorice wrap around the insistent, powerful finish. The fleshy, radiant finish is unusual for the year. This is one of the best Baroli readers will find for the money. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028."

Wine Spectator:

"Rich, sporting cherry, tar, tobacco and underbrush flavors, this muscular red is balanced toward the tannins. The lasting impression is sweet fruit, but this will take time to grow legs. Best from 2016 through 2035. -BS"

Product Description:

Wine:
"The wine is a intense garnet red. On the nose there are intense, complex, sweet spices, violets, and balsamic notes. On the palate there is good acidity with well integrated tannins."

"The wine is 100% Nebbiolo. Fermentation and maceration with the skins for 5-6 days in rotary fermentors with temperature control (28-34 gradi C). The wine matures with the skins for two years in large oak casks. Finishing in the bottle for 6 months." - Importer
