Wine Enthusiast 93 points - Balsamic aromas of menthol and eucalyptus unfold in the glass and mingle with scents of leather, licorice and dark berry. The concentrated palate delivers dried black cherry, crushed raspberry, black pepper and grilled herb alongside velvety tannins. Drink 2015-2022.
Wine Advocate 92 points - Claudio Viberti’s 2007 Barolo Riserva San Pietro shows immediate aged tones and cured meat and some grittiness. Gas petrol - lots of petrol - and road pavement also emerge. It has nice intensity. No toasted oak is used, although there’s enough wood spice at the back to add structure. Drink: 2015-2025.
