Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 94 points

The 2009 Cannubi S. Lorenzo ? Ravera shows similar tones of dark tobacco leaf and herb. But this expression also delivers a dusty mineral note that beautifully frames and delineates the overall bouquet. The big surprise is due to the crisp freshness of this wine. Thanks to that acidity, you can count on the wine?s aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

This traditionally crafted Barolo presents a gorgeous bouquet of dried rose petal, violet and truffle with hints of forest floor and leather. The palate delivers juicy wild cherry and berry flavors, layered with mint and balsamic herbs and shows great depth and balance. It is loaded with finesse, and with time will develop even more complexity.

Vinous: 92 points

Good medium red. Enticing aromas of redcurrant, sour red cherry, marzipan and violet, plus a whiff of smoky oak. Silky and perfumed in the mouth but still youthfully unforthcoming. Rich in the style of the year but with very good definition and inner-mouth perfume. "Our most feminine Barolo, from more sandy soil," noted Marta Rinaldi, adding that the family's holding in Ravera is closer to the woods, cooler and southeast-facing, and thus contributes acidity to the blend.
