James Suckling 96 points - The 2007 Barolo Bricco Luciani is one of the most beautiful wines I have tasted here in quite some time. Dark berries, flowers, minerals and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this sexy, well-delineated Barolo. The 2007 possesses more depth than has been the norm over the recent past and also less new oak, a combination that has yielded a fabulous result. The wine’s inner perfume carries through gracefully to the long, silky finish. This is a hugely enjoyable Barolo from Grasso. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Wine Advocate 94 points - The black cherry, licorice, tar and tobacco flavors are vivid and bright in this red. Full of sweet fruit, oak spice and mouthcoating tannins, this finds a good equilibrium on the lingering, spicy finish. Best from 2015 through 2030.—B.S.
2007 GRASSO SILVIO BAROLO BRICCO LUCIANI
"Wow. This is a young Barolo with a beautiful clarity of fruit from dark berries to wet forest floor. The wine is full bodied, with chocolate, vanilla and blackberry character with vanilla bean undertones. Long and intense. Fascinating young wine that deserves to be in your cellar."
