James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, November 2013
This is a ripe red with raisin and spice aromas plus hints of mushroom and wet earth. Full body and very ripe fruit with spicy undertones. Chewy yet round, caressing tannins.

Chewy yet round, caressing tannins. This is very powerful for the vintage. Needs until 2016 to show its quality.

Also tasted in a magnum, the 2008 Barolo Riserva Vecchie Viti dei Capalot e delle Brunate is an extraordinary wine that delivers warm tones of baked brick, moist earth, white truffle and autumnal leaf. The wine opens with an inky dark appearance and shows solid structure at the back. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. 96+ - Monica Larner

Good bright, deep red. Wonderfully delicate aromas of redcurrant, cherry, mocha, flowers and tobacco.

Wonderfully delicate aromas of redcurrant, cherry, mocha, flowers and tobacco. Silky on entry, then suave and fine-grained in the middle, showing a remarkably primary character to its red fruit and spice flavors. This impeccably balanced, elegant Barolo finishes with noble tannins and great subtle, mounting persistence. A great vintage for this bottling.

Magnum. 90% Capalot, 10% Brunate. Bricky ruby. Fragrant with tea leaf and undergrowth, spice too, and earthy. Savoury, dense, really firm grip, savoury, so not ready for drinking. 18/20 (JH)

Elegant and pretty, with ample flesh to the cherry, licorice and spice flavors. The refined tannins reveal themselves on the finish, which is long and spicy. Fine harmony. Best from 2015 through 2028. – BS
