WS 94 AG 93 JS 92 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Juniper, sage and sandalwood aromas segue into cherry and raspberry flavors in this polished Barolo. Leather and tea accents add dimension as this stays vibrant through the firm finish."
According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2010 Barolo Mariondino is quite pretty. Dark red cherries, plums, dried flowers, new leather and spices flesh out in a racy, expressive Barolo with lovely mid-palate pliancy and depth. The Mariondino has a bit more depth than the straight Barolo, which serves to balance the whole clusters nicely. The 2010 closes up pretty quickly in the glass and is likely headed for a long period of dormancy. This is another fascinating, intriguing Barolo from Marco Parusso."
According to James Suckling - "Lots of ripe fruit, dried flowers and dried mushrooms on the nose here. Full body with round, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Decadent and rich. Better in 2016 when the tannins soften."
