Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"There is no doubt the 2007 Barolo Campe is impressive. It is a beautifully balanced wine layered with opulent, super-ripe fruit, new leather and licorice. The French oak is beautifully balanced in this broad-shouldered Barolo, while the fruit avoids the overripe tendencies of the past. The wine holds up perfectly in the glass, which hasn’t always been the case. Tar, licorice and spices wrap around the intense finish. This is the finest vintage of Campe to date. Kudos to Giorgio Rivetti and his team for this fabulous effort. To be released in 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."

94+ Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Full red. Deep, youthfully reticent aromas of red fruits and cocoa powder. Richer and deeper than the 2008 but much less expressive today and a bit more angular. Surprising acidity is nicely supported by a strong impression of dry extract. This very rich but classically dry Barolo finishes with outstanding breadth and length but will need at least as long in the cellar as the 2008, which is sexier today." - Stephen Tanzer (Oct/Nov '11)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A rangy, feral red, revealing flavors of eucalyptus, medicinal herbs and leather, accented by oak. There's a beam of black currant fruit underneath, and this has stiff tannins on the finish now, so be patient. Best from 2015 through 2035. 0850 cases made." –BS (Dec 15, 2011)
