Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (96 points):
"It's hard not to be smitten by the 2009 Barolo Riserva Vigna Elena. This is a gorgeous expression with a compelling sense of depth, flavor intensity and extraction. This wine is made with a rare Nebbiolo clone called Rosè. Riserva Vigna Elena exhibits enormous attention to detail with micro aromas of wild berry, spice, cola, licorice and white truffle that are fused together in a penetrating aromatic front. The tannins finely textured and silky."

Galloni (95 points):

"A deep, powerful wine, the 2009 Barolo Riserva Vigna Elena boasts remarkable balance for the vintage. The flavors are dark and resonant to the core in a Barolo built on textural depth. Cocoa, mocha, spices, menthol, leather and sage all add notable dimensions of complexity as this seamless Barolo captivates the senses with its inviting personality. I imagine the 2009 Vigna Elena will reward consumers with a long and broad drinking window."
