“The 2003 Barolo Percristina, from Mosconi, a south-facing site in Monforte d’Alba, is the most forward of Clerico’s Barolos. Early signs of oxidation have begun to creep in. Still, the 2003 is nicely textured, supple and round, with all of the breadth of Mosconi. Here, too, the tannins are imposing, and will only become more so with the passage of time. In a scorching hot year, due south-facing sites are often penalized, as is the case here, although I must point out that the Pajana, which is also from a south-facing site, has handled time more gracefully.” 89 points, Antonio Galloni vinous.com

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
