Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2007
($76) The 2004 Barolo Mariondino reveals the essence of tar, roses, violets, plums, prunes, herbs and sweet toasted oak. It is a delicate, pristine Barolo that offers outstanding length and notable harmony. The firmer tannins that are the hallmark of this site are evident, but they are superbly balanced by the wine’s fruit and aromatics. This is a lovely Barolo from Marco Parusso.    92 points.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 2007
($70-$90; this parcel in Castiglione Falletto, which Parusso describes as a "premier cru," faces east and north and is usually picked late) Good full red. Cool aromas of currant, spices, rose petal and musky dried fruits. Pliant and spicy, with very good energy and cut. Not a big wine but boasts excellent precision and a juicy purity of flavor. The tannins are substantial but avoid dryness. (In fact, this one makes the normale seem dry.) "Not a large wine," notes Parusso, who says that owing to the wine's typical oriental spice character he gave the 2003 release a rather exotic orange label.    90 points.
