Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!
The color is an intense glossy garnet, with orange reflections. The bouquet is ethereal, with hints of violets, blackberry jam, licorice and cloves. The palate is dry and austere, with a lingering hint of almonds.
"Very pretty plum and fresh flower aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Layered and serious. Very close to the fabulous 1997. Best after 2009." - Wine Spectator
Barolo is, without a doubt, the most fascinating and emotional of all our wines. It has an air of aristocracy and even a domineering personality. Yet our Barolo is rich with hidden hues, which are enjoyed by those who take the time to savour this wine. Our Barolo is intentionally "traditional": austere and important, a wine to be approached thoughtfully. It is not easy, but it is unique and splendid. Both our name and our reputation have been connected with this magnificent wine for over one hundred years. And even though it is never easy, we have always been blessed with the satisfaction and emotion this wine gives us.

Excellent! Pio Cesare Barolo is always one of my favorites from Italy, and 2001 is an outstanding vintage.
