Wine Spectator 91 points - A heady, plum-laden style, with hints of smoke, wild cherry and flowers. Though rich, this features moderate tannins and a vibrant finish. Should evolve in the near term. Best from 2015 through 2027. 316 cases made.

Wine Advocate 94 points - I love the character of the 2009 Barolo La Serra and was immediately blown away by the beauty of the bouquet. The wine exhibits exotic tones of cumin seed and cardamom that take your senses to an imaginary North African bazaar. The consistency is soft and sensual. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
