Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2008 Barolo Per Cristina is a big, dark and exuberant wine. It opens to dark color saturation and beautiful aromatic intensity. This is a wine of purpose and character. It truly stands out for the quality of the mouthfeel that possesses deep inner grace, elegance, power and length. The bouquet is slightly evolved with notes of dried cherry, licorice, white truffle and toasted hazelnut. The tannins are fine and integrated at this point, offering silky polish on the close.
