Medium red. Deeper and richer on the nose than the Pajana, with scents of redcurrant, mocha, dried flowers and earth. Wonderfully deep, layered and sweet; lush but with good limestone lift. This floods the palate with flavor and lingers with exceptional purity and persistence.

96 points, Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar (Oct/Nov 2011)

The 2008 Barolo Ciabot Mentin is a little more interesting than the Pajana, but not much. It shows good energy and length, but never seems to truly blossom in the way the best vintages typically do. Flowers, mint, licorice and red berries are woven into the long, saline finish. Today the Ciabot Mentin comes across as compact, austere and lacking fruit. It shows good up-front energy, but then tails off abruptly on the mid-palate. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue # 200 - Apr 2012)

Starts out broad and soft, with cherry, plum, mint and licorice flavors, turning firm and dry on a base of muscular tannins. Tobacco and tea notes grace the finish. Best from 2016 through 2035. 2,000 cases made.
