Wine Advocate (97)- "An homage to Barolo, the so-called "king of wines," this magnum features a lion on its front label instead of the estate's trademark rhinoceros. The La Spinetta 2009 Barolo Riserva Campè Vürsù (Magnum) is a rare and precious wine with only 600 magnums in existence. Its sheer power roars from within, thanks to a long series of dark and variety-driven aromas. Dried cherry, blackberry, tilled earth, black licorice, exotic spice and campfire ash play leading roles. This vintage also presents balsamic tones of cola, dried ginger and grilled rosemary. It wraps thickly over the palate with integrated tannins and rich textural support."
Wine Advocate (96)- "The 2008 Barolo Riserva Campe Vursu (Magnum) seems to be the most evolved and nuanced of all of the offering from La Spinetta in tasting. It is a dark and well-saturated red wine that just keeps on giving. As this wine continues to unfold over the next decade, watch for more extraordinary notes of pipe tobacco, cola, licorice and hopefully some retained earthy tones of truffle and herbs. This magnum would be a treasure in any cellar."
Vinous Media (95+)- "The 2008 Barolo Campe (magnum) has aged impeccably. Gracious, silky and perfumed, with striking red berry fruit, the 2008 is in a gorgeous place for drinking now. Readers who own the 2008 in magnum are in for a real treat. The 2008 is floral, lifted and incredibly refined. It is also one of the most complete and alluring wines I have tasted from La Spinetta. "
