A deeper concentrated expression of fruit here, that is masked by the freshness of the black cherry fruit, that oozes refined elegance. The power of Serralunga is on display here, with the fine expansive tannins, giving an operatic voice to the wine.” Highly Recommended – Todd Slater, FWC.
The flagship 2011 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is sensual, round and inviting, with striking translucence and overall freshness for the year. The flavours are bright, floral and very nicely lifted throughout. Just bottled a few months ago, the 2011 clearly needs time, but it is quite impressive and every bit as delicious as it was from cask last year. 95+ points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com.
