Wine Advocate 95 points - Elio Grasso did not produce the Barolo Riserva in 2005, 2009 or 2011. However, you can enjoy the stunning 2007 Barolo Riserva Roncot shortly. Super-low yields in the vineyard (down to three clusters per vine) make for a wine of enormous intensity and beauty. The whole effect is truly spectacular. Soaring aromas of dark fruit, licorice, tar, pressed rose, lavender, garden herb, dried mint and brimstone develop momentum and power with each swirl of the glass. Nebbiolo-s trademark structure holds the wine together, but the beautiful 2007 vintage has added its part with extra layers of softness and richness. This is pure pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2038.  (Jun 2013)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Rich and open, offering a lush, velvety texture and ripe cherry notes that conceal a core of iron, licorice and eucalyptus. This is firm, focused and vibrant, with lively acidity driving the fresh, resonant finish. Approachable now, but should be better in a few years. Best from 2015 through 2030. 155 cases imported. –BS  (Apr 30 2014)
