94 Points, Gary Walsh – “Dark cherry, spiced ripe strawberry, sugared almonds, dried herb and mint/menthol. It’s medium to full-bodied, ripe in red fruit and cherry flavour, yet stays pretty fresh, open weave tannin offers pleasing grip, and there’s a stony ‘mineral’ feel, along with sweet spices, and a long almond-laced finish. It’s a lovely wine, with no shortage of character and drinking appeal. Yes.”

94 Points, Galloni – “The 2017 Barbaresco shows just how appealing this vintage can be. In 2017, the warm, dry growing season gave the Barbaresco an extra kick of richness that fills out its frame and adds so much immediacy. Sweet red berry fruit, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are open in the glass, but it is the wine’s seductive radiance that wins the day. Pora, Ovello, Montestefano, Muncagota and Rio Sordo are the main vineyards used for the straight Barbaresco. The 2017 is such an inviting and expressive wine. Don’t miss it!.”
