2008 Aurelio Settimo - Barolo
95

Wine Spectator: This is really singing today, packed with licorice, leather, cherry, tobacco and menthol aromas and flavors. The tannins are rounding out, and though not a powerhouse, this still shows persistence, with an aftertaste of spice and licorice. Approachable now, but should evolve even more with time. Drink now through 2028. 150 cases imported. -BS

Wine Spectator: Dark and spicy, billowing with plum, currant and white chocolate flavors, picking up pear and white tea notes as the finish lingers with refinement. The tannins are submerged. Drink now through 2018. 162,000 cases made. 'HS

Wine Spectator: Fresh, vital and open-textured, this cool-climate Shiraz drips with plum and currant fruit, weaving in black pepper, mineral and black olive notes. Finishes with a refreshing lilt while maintaining momentum. Drink now through 2019. 3,000 cases imported. 'HS
