94 POINTS: WINE ADVOCATE - The 2007 Barolo Riserva Bricco Voghera is a stunning interpretation with bold fruit contours and plenty of complexity as you read between the lines. Blackberry and red currant segue to tar, licorice, balsam herb and rosemary sprig. The intensity is bright and vibrant. This is a slightly bigger expression of Nebbiolo and the 2007 vintage offers thicker texture and more richness compared to most other years. -Monica Larner

93 POINTS: WINE SPECTATOR - Cherry and berry flavors combine with wild herbs, musk, cedar, anise and leather accents in this dense, muscular red. Complex and savory, turning more supple with air on the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2036. 260 cases made. -BS

MISSION NOTES: Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow……….did I say wow? This wine is like a symphony in your mouth. Deep, dark, supple fruits, earthiness and spice, thick tannins, chewy on the palate, rich and heady on the finish, and practically begging for a thick slab of meat. First off, we’re dealing with 100 year old vines here. ONE HUNDRED YEARS! The vines are so old that many of them only produce one cluster a year at this point!!! Since this is a Barolo Reserva, it’s aged 30 months in Slavonian Oak barrels before bottling, then held back another few years before release. In this case, it’s been held back 14 years. If you’re new to wine, Barolo is a region in Italy’s northern Piedmonte region that makes red wines from a grape called Nebbiolo. It’s thin-skinned and juicy like Pinot Noir, its varietal relative, but it can also be quite tannic in its youth. Hence, you generally want to age them a decade or more. Rarely, do we find high-end versions like this where the aging has been done for you, but that’s what we have here. And this wine is in an absolutely perfect place. I can’t recommend it highly enough. -David Driscoll, Mission Sales Manager
