95+ points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "Medium red. Pure but reticent aromas of minerals and spices, with a deep woodsy sweetness. Then dense, lush and silky but youthfully backward. This powerfully minerally, spicy wine boasts fruit of steel. Finishes with big, broad, strong tannins and great length and grip. A classic Barolo in need of a good decade of additional cellaring. (Nov/Dec 2004)"

95 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): "This is a great showing for Conterno's 1999 Barolo Riserva Granbussia. A deeply-flavored, structured wine, it offers expressive aromatics and layers of sweet black cherries, roses and tar in a powerful, intense style. It needs at least a few additional years of cellaring for the oak to soften, but it is a terrific effort. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024. (May 2008)"

Gambero Rosso: " extraordinary Riserva... Consummately classic in the true tradition of the estate, it reveals a rich array of enveloping aromas that follow through well in notes of forest floor, velvet-smooth leather, liquorice and a fabulous, harmonious finish that augurs well for the future. (2006)"
