WE 94 WS 92 JS 92 AG 91+ Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Structured and polished, it has an alluring fragrance of dried rose petals, leather, red berries, menthol and eucalyptus. Succulent black cherry flavors are accented with notes of white pepper, mint, sage and balsam. Firm, velvety tannins and fresh acidity create balance. Drink 2016–2024.
According to Wine Spectator - The alluring cherry and floral aromas and flavors are accented by tobacco and underbrush notes, yet overall this shows elegance and detail. Best from 2016 through 2028.
According to James Suckling - Decadent and very ripe with berries, truffles and earth. Full body, soft but chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A rich, decadent wine. Better in 2016.
According to Antonio Galloni - Dark red cherries, tobacco, menthol, licorice and mint waft from the glass in the 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo. This is an unusually dark, powerful Rio Sordo (within the context of the vintage) with fewer of the open, floral qualities that are the hallmark of this site. Today, the Rio Sordo is quite powerful and intense. It will be interesting to see if the finesse of this site develops with time. Rated 90+
