DESCRIPTION

 

Stephen Tanzer Int'l Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 2009(aged in 40% new oak) Bright ruby-red. Sexy perfume of plum, brown spices and minerals. Sweet, fleshy and ripe but with plenty of underlying structure and power. This very concentrated 2006 is best today on the very long, suave back end, which displays excellent energy, a note of dried flowers and an enticing oaky sweetness. 93 points

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Feb 2010
A beguiling, deep bouquet melds seamlessly into dark cherries, menthol and spices as the 2006 Barolo Giachini flows onto the palate. This shows gorgeous detail and delineation, with additional layers of textural richness from the well-integrated French oak. A superbly elegant and beautifully crafted wine, the 2006 Barolo Giachini is a terrific effort from one of La Morra’s top sites. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. 94 points.
