96 points Decanter

Benefitting from impressive reserves of back vintages, Andrea has opened the 1982 Riserva on a number of occasions and claims it often shows even better than this particular bottle. A great year in Barolo, this is still very much alive, full of chestnut, tobacco, damp earth and meaty scents. It has really fresh acidity and integrated tannins which continue to provide structure after all these years. Fragrant macerated cherries, black tea, exotic spices and tobacco give this '82 Riserva a delightfully elegant, complex character. (JB) (3/2022)

96 points James Suckling

This is a superb old Barolo showing spice, cedar, meat and dried-berry character. Full body with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Amazing. (2/2014)
