Reviews
• JamesSuckling.com: 94 Aromas of dried porcini with plum and orange peel. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A big red still and just starting to open.
• Wine Spectator: 93 Cherry and berry flavors combine with wild herbs, musk, cedar, anise and leather accents in this dense, muscular red. Complex and savory, turning more supple with air on the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2036. 260 cases made.
• Robert Parker: 94 The 2007 Barolo Riserva Bricco Voghera is a stunning interpretation with bold fruit contours and plenty of complexity as you read between the lines. Blackberry and red currant segue to tar, licorice, balsam herb and rosemary sprig. The intensity is bright and vibrant. This is a slightly bigger expression of Nebbiolo and the 2007 vintage offers thicker texture and more richness compared to most other years.
