    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet red in color. Richly rounded with a robust and velvety texture; intensely aromatic with hints of figs and plums. Elegant with soft and sweet tannins, followed by a long finish.

    Drink with game, red meats and aged cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Barolo Lazzarito comes across as remarkably primary. Dark red fruit, iron, tar, smoke, wild flowers and minerals are all wrapped aroud a serious intense, mid-palate and finish. Today the 2008 comes across as a bit tightly wound, but that is the personality of the year. The balance of fruit, structure and oak is superb. Layers of fruit flow through to the firm, authoritative finish. This is impressive juice. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.

    Attractive aromas of dried fruits and flowers follow through to a full body, with sweet plum fruit and hints of dried mushroom. Long and lemony as well as red fruits. Complex. Beautiful future here.

    James Suckling

    There's an underpinning of iron in this cherry- and tar-infused red. Open in texture, with a solid structure relying on the one-two punch of acidity and tannins. The tea and balsamic notes linger. Best from 2016 through 2032.

    Wine Spectator

    Amber-edged medium red. Strawberry, orange peel, cocoa powder and graphite on the nose. Sweeter and more seamless than the Rocche, showing strong acidity but a better early balance. Finishes long, brisk and perfumed, with a strong acid impression accentuated by a mineral firmness.
