Wine Enthusiast, 95 Points 

"Lovely aromas of violet, iris and perfumed berry lift out of the glass. Firmly structured and focused, the linear palate shows refinement and finesse, with taut, refined tannins framing juicy red cherry, strawberry compote and star anise. Fresh acidity keeps it vibrant and balanced. Best 2029–2039. Editors' Choice" 

Wine Advocate, 94 Points 

"The 2019 Barbaresco fits in perfectly with this portfolio of new releases, and although this is not a single-vineyard expression, the wine shows a ton of territorial and varietal authenticity nonetheless. You get sharp and pinpoint aromas of purple fruits with lifted tones of licorice, earth and pressed blue flower. The mouthfeel is silky and taut." 

Wine Spectator, 93 Points 

"Bright and expressive, delivering ripe plum, cherry, tar, tobacco and a hint of menthol aromas and flavors. Both fluid and compact, with vivid acidity driving the long finish."  

James Suckling, 92 Points 

"Aromas of sliced strawberries, bark and spices, such as dried coriander and nutmeg. Full-bodied with layers of fine tannins and a lovely texture. It’s very drinkable now." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Medium ruby red. Elegant and harmonious nose with aromas of plum, mushroom and cherry skin. Full bodied and dry with silky tannins and a fresh finish." 

Alcohol: 14%
