The 2011 Barolo Riserva is a dark and tarry expression of Nebbiolo that shows much of the depth and sophistication that you can expect of this grape as it evolves over time. The 2011 vintage was a hot one, and the primary fruit has faded in this seven-year-old wine. Dried berry, rose petal and chopped mint leaves appear on the close. The mouthfeel offers loose texture and mild intensity. Some 7,000 bottles were made. Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

The 2011 Barolo Riserva needs a bit of air to show at its best. Dark cherry, mocha, licorice, spice and menthol fill out the layers effortlessly. More than anything, though, I am impressed with how fresh and vibrant the Riserva is for a wine from such a torrid vintage. Early signs of aromatic and flavor maturity are just starting to be evident now. There is quite a bit of tannin, though, so I would enjoy the 2011 with hearty cuisine. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
