SKU #1215317 98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Now coming into its own with aromas of flower petals, dried porcini and ripe fruit. Soft, full and super rich. Decadent with loads of fruit. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (6/2013)

98 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Gorgeous nose of cut roses, raspberry, strawberry and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, with powerful yet refined tannins. Incredible structure yet wonderful finesse. Goes on and on. A brick house. *Highly Recommended* Inner quote mark (12/2006)

Outer quote mark The 2000 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda Dieci Anni represents the essence of refinement and elegance. Dried roses, tar, licorice, cherries and leather are some of the notes that spin out effortlessly from this sublime, pedigreed Barolo. Today the 2000 Dieci Anni is in an in-between state where the earliest signs of tertiary aromatics suggest the wine might be close to being ready to drink, while the foreboding tannins tell another story entirely. This powerful, sensual Rionda needs at least another few years in bottle, but it is already shaping up to be a beauty. This is one of the best Riondas Massolino has ever made. The Dieci Anni is a re-release of the 2000 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda from the estate’s library. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The dense structure and ferrous minerality common to Serralunga are rendered more open and plush in Franco Massolino's '00 Vigna Rionda. With subtle violet aromas, ripe plum flavors and softened tannins, it's altogether elegant. An excellent match for grilled lamb chops. Inner quote mark (12/2007)
