Jeb Dunnuck, 97 Points 

"The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is a charming and more fruit-forward wine with a fresh and lush texture. Drinking well now, it offers a silky texture with sweet tannins and is flush with kirsch, raspberry liqueur, and blood orange. For all of its joyful charm, it still retains fresh tension that is going to have lots of life ahead of it. Best After 2023." 

Wine Advocate, 96 Points 

"The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo takes it up a notch if you consider the tasting of each one of these single-vineyard wines tasted in order. With the Rio Sordo, you really start to feel the textural richness and fruit weight that can be achieved with Nebbiolo in a great vintage. This vintage is compact and tightly woven together, suggesting a forecast for an extra long drinking window. The Alutto and Marengo families farm the fruit used in this blend. This wine will live long, and I love that touch of candied licorice that appears on the close (especially when you come back to the open bottle 24 hours later)." 

Wine Spectator, 95 Points 

"Eucalyptus, cut hay and licorice accent the cherry, plum and mineral flavors in this suave red. Firm and powerful, with assertive, nervous tannins and vibrant acidity. A bit jumbled today, yet there is energy and length on the finish indicating its future potential." 

Alcohol: 15%
