98 points "Wine Spectator A brick house of a wine, with so much structure. Strawberry and raspberry tart on the nose. Full-bodied, with big chewy tannins and a fresh fruit finish. This is incredibly youthful and needs much more bottle time.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2012. 1,400 cases made. Score: 98. —James Suckling, 2008. International Wine Cellar Full ruby-red. Exhilarating perfumed nose of black cherry, black raspberry, violet and licorice; vibrant and compelling. Dense and backward, with superb power and chewy depth. Racy acids give the flavors superb clarity. Powerfully structured and destined for a long evolution in bottle. Finishes with explosively spicy dark berry flavors. Score: 93-96. —Stephen Tanzer, November 2000. Wine Advocate The super-extracted, blockbuster 1998 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra assaults the palate with a blast of broodingly tannic, super-concentrated black cherry and raspberry fruit infused with minerals, new oak, licorice, and truffles. With a huge mid-palate as well as an astonishingly long finish, it is not yet ready to drink. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020. Score: 93. —Robert Parker, " Best 2012-2022

96 points "The 1996 Ciabot Mentin Ginestra is a wine of extraordinary balance. It displays a captivating, nuanced nose of menthol, spices, cocoa, oak, and licorice followed by layers of dark fruit that continually unfold in the glass. The tannins have softened somewhat, but this remains a young wine in need of a few more years of cellaring. If I had to pick one wine that captures this producer at his very best, the 1996 Ciabot would be at the top of my list. I fell in love with this wine when it was released and it never ceases to amaze for its superb elegance and harmony. 96/drink after 2008, 10/05" Best 2009-2020
