Domenico Clerico, Barolo Percristina, 2008, Piedmont

AED 480

“The 2008 Barolo Per Cristina is a big, dark and exuberant wine. It opens to dark color saturation and beautiful aromatic intensity. This is a wine of purpose and character. It truly stands out for the quality of the mouthfeel that possesses deep inner grace, elegance, power and length. The bouquet is slightly evolved with notes of dried cherry, licorice, white truffle and toasted hazelnut. The tannins are fine and integrated at this point, offering silky polish on the close.” The Wine Advocate #231

  • 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.

    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!

    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.
