Wine Spectator 91 points - This is lush, evoking plum, cherry, spice and earth flavors. The tannins are well-coated by flesh, lingering with earth and spice accents on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2030. 500 cases made.-BS

Vinous 91 points - The 2011 Barolo Pernanno is darker, richer and more powerful than the straight Barolo. Mocha, espresso, plum and deeper tonalities of fruit flesh out in the glass. Here, too, the style is quite forward and fruit-driven, that makes the Pernanno an excellent choice for drinking over the near and medium term.
