90 pts. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: June, 2011
The 2000 Barbaresco Sori’ Paitin is a big, muscular wine loaded with dark fruit but little in the way of aromatic nuance. It’s almost as if the wine has been frozen in time at some point, beyond which it never developed further. It is still an excellent Barbaresco, but frankly I expected more. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2015.

The 2000 Barbaresco Sori Paitin, with smoky kirsch fruit, mineral notes, and tar on the nose, is warm and intense on the palate with black cherry, tar, and anisette flavors and a full finish. Anticipated maturity: 2000–2016.

Intense aromas of crushed berry, with light hints of oak. Full-bodied, with fine tannins, very good fruit and a medium finish. Balanced and reserved. Best after 2007.

Paitin’s Barberesco possesses the muscle and depth of the pricier Barolo. Dark ruby color in the glass with intriguing aromas signaling what will follow on the palate. Fantastic depth and complexity in this still young Nebbiolo. Black cherry, mushrooms and the classic (more so with Barolo) floral or rose element. Chewy and full-bodied with plenty of fruit and tannins. Best decant for an hour or two or age another 5 to 15 years. Excellent quality.
