• Barbaresco "Tulin" DOCG 2013

      Barbaresco “Tulin” DOCG 2013

      In the bouquet eucalyptus and red berries. Energetic Barbaresco with a horn of fruit, rose petals and spices. Wonderfully polished style, one of the great wines of Pelissero. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A polished and velvety red with blueberry, chocolate and light walnut character. Medium body, firm and soft textured. Flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "The 2013 Barbaresco Tulin is deep and layered in the glass, but also quite shut down today. There is plenty of intensity in the glass, but the wine still needs time to come together, as it is a bit nervous today. With air, the wine starts to show some of its pedigree, but readers are best off cellaring the 2013 for at least a few years. Sweet red cherry, plum rose petal and blood orange infuse the expressive finish. This is the wine that shows the energy of the late harvest the most. " Antonio Galloni

    • Barbaresco Rio Sordo Riserva DOCG 2014

      Barbaresco Rio Sordo Riserva DOCG 2014

      Rio Sordo Riserva is particularly dense, rich and balanced. In the bouquet roses, spices and raspberries. On the palate very complex and of splendid depth. The floral notes to the finale make this feminine Barbaresco Riserva irresistible even at a young age. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A shade deeper than the Pora Riserva and perhaps a little more youthful. Deep, peppery, dusty strawberry fruit on the nose. A little more concentration on the palate, too, with linear acidity and pure raspberry fruit. Cool, elegant and with a gripping tannic structure." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is the most open-knit and easygoing of these Riservas. Creamy and giving, the Rio Sordo is one of the more available of the Riservas in the early going, an impression that is reinforced by its mid-weight structure. Perfumed floral notes add lift to the dark, red-toned fruit." Antonio Galloni

      "This red combines a rich, fleshy texture that verges on chewy with a firm structure and cherry, menthol, licorice, spice and mineral flavors. Dense, revealing tension and dusty tannins on the long finish. Shows terrific energy." Wine Spectator

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo represents a jump forward in structure compared to the other three vineyards (Pora, Pajè and Ovello) that were tasted before this wine. The Riserva Rio Sordo shows a dark and solid personality, with a tight core of black fruit that will relax and unwind with more bottle aging in the cellar. It is also slightly sharper and more focused in terms of mouthfeel, with the kind of tannic tightness you always get with young Nebbiolo in the cooler vintages such as 2014. Barbaresco lovers should jot this one down." Robert Parker

    • Barbaresco Pora Riserva DOCG 2014

      Barbaresco Pora Riserva DOCG 2014

      Pora overwhelms with incredible complexity and a variety of aromas ranging from raspberries and liquorice to dried flowers, spices and white truffles. On the palate, Pora Noblesse offers a certain noblesse and seriousness before it opens with bite and juiciness and ends velvety wide. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Promising scent of stone fruit, leather and tobacco; juicy in the mouth, the acidity perceptible, the tannin well integrated, racy and powerful, yet rich in finesse. To saddle of venison." Vinum

      "Lustrous mid ruby with orange tinges. Sweet, peppery raspberry nose with hints of strawberry jam. Clean-cut raspberry palate with plenty of acidity, but the fragrant fruit follows through. Fine layer of sandy tannins that become more prominent on the finish." Jancis Robinson

      "I had tasted this vintage last year as a barrel sample. Now a fully complete wine, the 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Pora did not disappoint, and even jumped up a few points. The Riserva Pora opens to dark fruit intensity with a slightly more accessible quality. Those lovely floral tones of lavender and violet are ever present. After having spent three years in oak and another year in the bottle, this wine offers a looser mouthfeel in terms of tannic structure, making it a bit more open and immediate in personality. You could uncork this bottle in 2020 if you just can't wait, but ideally, it is meant for the longer haul." Robert Parker

      "Although Pora is a relatively low-elevation site and can produce broad wines, Produttori's growers own almost half the cru, so they can select the best grapes for this Riserva. It's beautifully perfumed, with pure raspberry fruit. The palate is streamlined and poised, with a sleek texture and a remarkable purity of flavour, yet it doesn't lack structure and its fine acidity gives it drive and persistence." Decanter

      "Round and supple, exuding cherry, berry, licorice, eucalyptus and tar flavors. Harmonious and well-built, with a long aftertaste of menthol." Wine Spectator

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is a dark, sensual beauty. Deeply spiced and balsamic, with tremendous textural richness, the Pora is utterly beguiling. I can't remember a Pora with this much depth, textural resonance and brooding intensity. The 2014 needs at least a few years to be at its best, but it is superb even in the early going. I won't be surprised if the 2014 turns out to be better than this note suggests." Antonio Galloni

    • Barbaresco Muncagota Riserva DOCG 2014

      Barbaresco Muncagota Riserva DOCG 2014

      Muncagota, with a complex scent of cherries and raspberries, smoke, tobacco and spices, offers a remarkable fullness, sweetness and length to the palate from a young age. A well-structured, classic Barbaresco, which already gives us pleasure today and certainly for many years to come. Undoubtedly also its first-class price-performance ratio. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid ruby and the most youthful looking of all the 2014 Riserva crus. Cool raspberry nose that is slow to open up. Intense yet not sweet raspberry palate that is fresh and concentrated and with a firm structure. Very complete, but needs time. A little vibrant and mouth-watering on the finish." Jancis Robinson

      "Lean and taut, this reveals mint, menthol, licorice, orange peel and subtle cherry flavors, all underscored by assertive tannins and lively acidity. An austere style, this will need time to come around." Wine Spectator

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota is another of the overachievers in this range. White pepper, bright red cherry, floral notes and mint cut through the fruit in this beautifully vivid, crystalline Barbaresco. There is a level of energy, drive and overall nuance in the 2014 I don't recall having seen in the past. The 2014 is a terrific Muncagota." Antonio Galloni

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota is beautifully polished and bright, with dark berry fruit, ripe cherry, crushed stone and pressed flowers. The wine is compact and firm, and you feel the tannins and power in the mouth. The Muncagota remains slightly more closed in terms of the bouquet, but this will open up with some time."

      Barbaresco DOCG 2014

      In the nose and on the palate, bright red cherries, plums and spices blend with a potpourri of orange peels, tobacco and leather. The 2014 vintage surprises us with its great balance. Tight tannins support the very Nebbiolo typical overall impression - very successful! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pio Cesare's 2014 Barbaresco is bright, articulate and very attractive. Hints of citrus, wild flowers and white pepper add aromatic lift to this nuanced, mid-weight Barbaresco. The 2014 is a bit lithe in feel, but it has enough persistence to drink well for another decade or so." Antonio Galloni

      "Strains of sweet vanilla shine through the cherry, menthol and iron flavors in this austere, tensile red. Needs time for the fruit to assert itself, yet the aftertaste finds equilibrium." Wine Spectator

      "Lots of rose petals and dried fruit with hints of sliced oranges on the nose. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Linear and pretty." James Suckling

      Barbaresco DOCG 2015

      Pios Barbaresco 2015 is a beautiful wine. Bright and radiant, with a lot of Nebbiolo character, it is a successful interpretation of the balanced vintage. In the bouquet sweet red cherries, tobacco, mint, aniseed and white pepper. On the palate medium heavy and graceful with a good balance of perfume, acidity and structure. With further bottle ripeness he is looking forward to a great development. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, brilliant ruby red with a delicate brightening rim. Floreal fragrant nose of young pink roses, strawberries and fresh mint. Smooth and fine on the palate, extremely elegant, with a beautiful dress, finest tannin with delicate pressure, balanced, slightly salty final." Falstaff

      "The Pio Cesare 2015 Barbaresco offers a mid-weight approach and a solid core of fruit. That dark fruit center is surrounded by supple but delicate tones of exotic spice, smoke, tar, licorice and crushed stone. This is a fragrant and elegant expression that drinks beautifully straight out of the gate. This is a classic Barbaresco with an easy and approachable personality." Robert Parker

      "A dense and layered red with plums, dried orange and lemon peel and a long and flavorful finish. Beautiful. Such impressive layers and a fantastic finish. Very exciting. Love the length. Drink in 2020, but already beautiful." James Suckling

    • Barbaresco "Fausoni" DOCG 2015

      Barbaresco “Fausoni” DOCG 2015

      Translucent purple with a fresh, garnet red edge. The bouquet is a potpourri of dried fruits, dark chocolate and a delicate nougat note. Opened on the palate, it is fruity and velvety and with its straight lines and wonderfully integrated acidity it will be a pleasure for many years to come. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Broad-shouldered, with cherry, loam and licorice notes, this red boasts well-appointed tannins and bright acidity. Complex and chewy on the long finish." Wine Spectator

      "Showing elegance and grace starting with the first sip, the 2015 Barbaresco Fausoni also reveals power and integration. You get both sides of the spectrum with this wine: silk and muscle. The bouquet emits aromas of pressed blue flower, rose hip, dried red currant, spice and fine licorice. The finish is compact and long in persistence." Robert Parker

      "Deep, plum and floral nose, then a ripe and generous palate with considerable tannic power, but also very good balance. The dry, quite minerally finish is long and intense." James Suckling

      "Just bottled, the 2015 Barbaresco Fausoni possesses a level of volume and intensity to a degree I have not seen in this wine before. Sweet, perfumed and super-inviting, the 2015 is going to be nearly impossible to resist in its youth. Virtually seamless in the glass, but with considerable supporting structure, the 2015 captures all the sexiness of the year. The interplay between the radiance of the vintage and the more energetic, vibrant qualities that are typical of this site is compelling. Hard candy, rose petal, orange zest, mint and spice infuse the creamy, resonant finish." Antonio Galloni

      Barbaresco “Cottá" DOCG 2015

      Bright garnet red with copper edge. Fine cinema smell of red fruits and sea buckthorn. In addition forest soil paired with a breath of tobacco and bitter almond. In the glass then still young, at first loud tannins, with some air then softer tones and a powerful, lasting finale. An elegant, aristocratic wine that leaves a lasting impression not only at the first glass. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tasted blind. Maturing mid ruby with narrow bricky rim. Cloves, cinnamon bark and cherry palate with lots of coating tannins. Great balance, length and concentration. Hedonistic but needs more time." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Cottá comes across as a bit heavy, which is something that can happen in warmer vintages, where the natural heft of this site is amplified. There is no shortage of intensity and power, but the Cottà feels blowsy today. On the more positive side, the 2015 does offer a good bit of freshness. It will be interesting to see where things ultimately shake out here." Antonio Galloni

      "Very attractive red-cherry, redcurrant, plum and floral nose with discreet oak, then a sleek yet powerful and tannic palate with a lot of structure and some real elegance. Enough fruit for immediate drinking, but this is made for aging." James Suckling

      "From a celebrated cru in Neive, the 2015 Barbaresco Cottá is a shapely, soft and accessible interpretation of Nebbiolo from a warm vintage. This mid-weight wine boasts a bright bouquet with ruby highlights. Those aromas are alert, tonic and straightforward in delivery. In terms of mouthfeel, this wine is firm and structured. However, the astringency is safely within bounds (for a young Nebbiolo). Some 10,000 bottles were made. Only 10% of the wine goes into new oak and the rest goes into neutral barrique." Robert Parker

      "Cherry, strawberry, chicory and woodsy notes mark this solidly structured, tightly wound Barbaresco. The sweet fruit offsets the dense tannins for balance, and this stays long and vibrant." Wine Spectator

    • Barbaresco "Pajoré" DOCG 2015

      Barbaresco “Pajoré" DOCG 2015

      Bright garnet red with copper edge. Here comes the most opulent and friendly Barbaresco of the highly impressive squad of Sottimano's individual vineyards. Lavish scent of black fruits, orange peel, rounded off with a fine nut note. Fine-grained tannin already at an early age envelops the firm structure and reinforces the highly distinctive character - and this is only the beginning: with the years of maturity, Pajoré will have convinced even the last doubter of his monumental charisma and cast a spell over him! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense ruby garnet with luminous core. Elegant nose of rose petals, plums and some rum pot, in the aftertaste of blackberries. Plucking and salty on the palate, balanced and harmonious from start to finish, especially in the middle very strong, ends long and fruity". Falstaff

      "Tasted blind. Dark ruby with narrow bricky rim. Ripe, dark cherry that is a little ethereal but certainly complex. Full, ripe-fruit palate that is not yet as complex as the nose has it, but certainly generous and mouth-filling. Long and tactile finish with bags of grainy tannins matching the rich fruit." Jancis Robinson

      "Sleek and linear, with cherry, strawberry, menthol and chalky, stony flavors fused to the muscular tannins. Finishes lean and dry, with a kernel of sweet fruit bound up in the structure. This seems to have already shut down, so forget about it for five years." Wine Spectator

      "Intense aroma of cloves, but also rose and earth notes. This rather sophisticated, medium-to full-bodied Barbaresco has bold, dry tannins that are well integrated and a long, dry finish." James Suckling

      "Of these various single-vintage releases by Sottimano (including Basarin, Cottá and Fausoni), the 2015 Barbaresco Pajorè is very well integrated and smooth. The tannin management shows an excellent approach, and you don't get the astringency that comes forward in the Basarin. Instead, this expression offers increased focus on the ripe, round and plump fruit of the vintage. Only 5,000 bottles (including magnums) were produced." Robert Parker

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Pajoré is the most potent and brooding of the 2015s. The heft, weight and structure of Pajoré comes through in the 2015, but the flavor profile is similar to that of the other wines. Racy, silky and generous, the 2015 is very much the product of a warm, sunny growing season. The Pajoré will need at least a few years to shed some tannin, but it is very showy, even at this early stage." Antonio Galloni

      Barbaresco DOCG 2016 · MAGNUM

      In a deep, lively ruby to garnet red the Barbaresco shows itself with the extensive Bouquet of red fruits and pastries and a mineral touch. Its taste is convincing due to its rich, solid structure and continuous development, which ends in a long-winded, fragrant final. The leading winegrowers' cooperative in Italy already shows every year with its basic Barbaresco what it and its members are capable of. Complimenti! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tasted blind. Youthful looking mid ruby. Iron, oats and lifted sweet, rich fruit. Bags of ripe cherry on the palate but nothing out of kilter or overdone. Tannic layer under generous sweet-sour cherry fruit. Embryonic and with plenty of stuffing." Jancis Robinson

      "Cherry, tar and menthol flavors mark this rich, silky red. Even more expansive on the palate, building to a long, complex aftertaste. Beautifully balanced, this picks up a minerally accent on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Barbaresco is a stunning wine with tremendous richness for this bottling. Ample, deep and powerful, the 2016 exudes pedigree and class from start to finish. I can't remember a straight Barbaresco here with this much fruit density and unctuous richness, and yet there is more than enough tannin and overall structure to give the wine its classically leaning feel. A blast of sweet red cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol licorice and smoke hits the potent finish. What a wine!" Vinous

      "Enticing aromas of violet, woodland berry, loose vineyard soil, wild mint and a hint of spearmint shape the intensely fragrant nose. The tense, young palate is still nervous but already boasts finesse, showing wild raspberry, crunchy red cherry, white pepper and star anise. Firm, refined tannins and racy acidity give it a linear, almost austere elegance, while bright acidity keeps it focused and balanced." (Cellar Selection) Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas." Robert Parker

    • Barbaresco "Masseria" DOCG 2014

      Barbaresco “Masseria” DOCG 2014

      Barbaresco Masseria in breathtaking complexity, smells cherries, vanilla and coffee. Concentrated and with calm seriousness on the palate, with notes of earth and leather. Silky tannins in a long, smoky echo. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Call it the 2014 paradox: this controversial vintage has in fact produced some stellar wines, especially in the Barbaresco appellation. The 2014 Barbaresco Masseria is a softly textured wine with a yielding and velvety personality. It reveals a dark color and hearty disposition. It is generous and soft, requiring little cellar aging before it reaches its drinking prime. The 2014 vintage was hotter and saw less rain in Barbaresco compared to Barolo. Sandy soils in the Barbaresco appellation help to shape delicate and nuanced wines with bright floral and dark fruit aromas. Sandy soils dry out faster in the hot years because they drain any existing moisture too well. That's why a cooler and wetter vintage like 2014 is particularly well suited to Nebbiolo in Barbaresco." Robert Parker

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Masseria is superb. Dark, ample and structured, the 2014 captures all the pedigree of this important Barbaresco vintage. As always, the Vietti's Masseria is a wine that has Barolo-like structure and depth, partly because it is vinified and aged pretty much along the same lines as those wines. I expect the 2014 will require at least a handful of years to shed some tannin and start showing some of its inherent inner sweetness. There is so much to look forward to. Bright acids and a firm spine of tannin give the red-toned fruit energy and vivacity throughout." Antonio Galloni

    • Barbaresco "Masseria" DOCG 2015

      Barbaresco “Masseria” DOCG 2015

      Masseria comes from a vineyard in Bricco di Neive and is essentially vinified and matured like a Barolo. Impressive depth and intensity, with bright red cherry, cranberry, chalk and floral notes. On the palate it is full of aromatic intensity and power, without ever losing its typical Vietti shine. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Energetic, displaying rich cherry, plum, menthol and tar aromas and flavors. This is dense and feels like it's closing down, but the lasting impression is of sweet fruit. Offers a long, succulent finish." Wine Spectator

      "Vietti's 2015 Barbaresco Masseria is a dense, powerful wine that is going to need at least a few years to fully come together. In 2015, the Masseria is a decidedly potent, masculine Barbaresco, with huge tannins and tremendous fruit density. Time in bottle will help soften some of the edges, but I imagine the 2015 will always remain rather somber. Macerated dark cherry, scorched earth, new leather, tobacco and licorice add to an impression of virile intensity." Vinous

      "The 2015 Barbaresco Masseria shows nice, delicate fiber and a silkiness that marks this rendition as one of the most subtle and refined in recent memory. It's a much more elegant approach than 2010, for example, another hot July and August growing season that produced very different results, perhaps with more rigidity at the back. Serve this softer wine from 2015 with some blue cheese or Gorgonzola." Robert Parker
