"Garnet-red with ruby highlights that take on a slightly orange tone over time, it has a clear-cut, intense nose with overtones of vanilla, spices, withered roses and underbrush; its taste is dry, but soft, full-bodied, velvety and well balanced, and is very long-lasting."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate review of 2003 vintage: 90 points. "The 2003 Barolo Serralunga is a terrific effort. This deeply-colored, explosive Barolo is packed with smoke, tar, licorice and dark, ripe fruit. Made in a full-bodied style, it possesses exceptional balance and superb drinkability, with plenty of Serralunga character and a long, fresh finish. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017."
