2012 Fratelli Barale "Serraboella" Barbaresco

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rose, violet and red berry aromas waft out of the glass. The vibrant palate offers juicy wild cherry and crushed strawberry while white pepper and anise provide the backup. It's elegantly structured but still young and tight so give this time to unwind. Drink 2019–2027. (KO)" (10/2015)

2012 Ronchi Barbaresco

94 points Wine Spectator: "Textbook aromas and flavors of rose, cherry and tar, along with shadings of tobacco and mineral, combine with a firm, vibrant structure in this elegant, intense red. The long aftertaste echoes the flavors, while the juicy texture enhances them. Best from 2018 through 2032. (BS)" (9/2016) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barbaresco Ronchi is a bit more immediate than the Ovello, but with larger-grained tannins and more power, both of which give it that slight burliness that Barbarescos from Ronchi can sometimes show. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and game hit the palate in a ...Read More »

2011 Rivella Barbaresco Top Pick!
2011 Rivella Barbaresco

92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Barbaresco is round, sensual and inviting, with tons of near and medium-term appeal. This is an especially large-scaled, ample entry-level Barbaresco that shows just how compelling this vintage is here in the Barbaresco zone. Ripe, silky tannins wrap around the voluptuous, engaging finish. The Barbaresco emerges from a parcel just outside Montestefano with a more northerly exposure that in this vintage helped preserve nuance and precision. This is a striking wine from the Rivella family. (AG)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: The Barbaresco comes from 1.5 acres of viney... Read More »

2011 Produttori del Barbaresco "Ovello" Barbaresco Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello, from one of the coolest zones in Barbaresco, is superb. Here it is the wine's precision and energy - both hard to come by in 2011 - that really stand out. Pine, mint, chalk, bright red berries, blood orange and white pepper are some of the signatures in a brilliant, finely-cut Barbaresco that captures the best of both the vintage and this site. Don't miss it! (AG)" (12/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A peppery, spicy style, this displays cherry, eucalyptus, tar and black pepper aromas and flavors. Firmly tannic, yet with a core of concentrated sw ...Read More »

2012 Ca' del Baio "Vallegrande" Barbaresco

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of strawberry and cherry with hints of flowers. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a silky tannin texture. Bright and pretty. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barbaresco Vallegrande is a forward, supple wine to drink now and over the next few years. Spice, sweet tobacco, black cherry, menthol, pine and a host of balsamic-inflected nuances give the fruit much of its aromatic lift, while firm tannins add energy and a sense of drive. The overall profile is very typical of Vallegrande and Treiso more broadly. I would prefer to drink the 2012 soo ...Read More »

2012 Ca' del Baio "Asili" Barbaresco

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cherry, dried apple and hints of cedar. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Hints of walnut skin and wet earth. Solid and attractive. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Ca' del Baio's 2012 Barbaresco Asili is sweet, open-knit and seductive; in other words classic Asili. Tobacco, crushed flowers, mint and red-fleshed fruits all blossom in the glass. Medium in body and lithe on the palate, the 2012 gives the impression of being a wine to drink sooner rather than later, as it appears to lack a measure of depth and complexity. Given the prime quality ...Read More »

2013 Prunotto Barbaresco

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing a hearty dose of all-Nebbiolo personality, the 2013 Barbaresco opens to well-balanced notes of dried berry, licorice, tar and blue flower. The ensemble is delicate and fresh. What makes this wine so appealing is the fact it offers such a clear and pristine view of the grape that is especially well-executed in this vintage. The finish is elegant and silky." (9/2016)

2012 Ca' del Baio "Marcarini" Barbaresco

92 points James Suckling: "A red with dried-strawberry, earth and meat aromas that follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a cedar, sandalwood and dried-berry aftertaste. Lovely length to this." (10/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barbaresco Marcarini shows a much darker expression of Treiso, along with greater depth, ripeness and textural richness than the Vallegrande. Black cherry, plum, cloves, leather and smoke all open up in a Barbaresco endowed with considerable mid-palate sweetness and distinctly baritone-inflected nuances. Here the expression of Nebbiolo is broad and ample. (AG) ...Read More »

2011 Ca' del Baio "Vallegrande" Barbaresco

92 points James Suckling: "Beautiful purity of fruit to this with dried-strawberry, flower and cherry character. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Lightly chewy, which gives tension to the wine. Better in 2016." (12/2014) 91 points Vinous: "Bright red cherries, pine, spice and mint are some of the notes that jump from the glass in the 2011 Barbaresco Vallegrande. Floral and lifted in the glass, the 2011 stands out for its nuance and delineation. In this vintage, the Vallegrande retains its essentially perfumed, mid-weight personality.

2011 Rivella Barbaresco "Montestefano"

93 points Vinous: "93+: The 2011 Barbaresco Montestefano presents more depth and darkness than the straight Barbaresco, but the two wines aren't that different, which is common in warmer vintages that tend to flatten out vineyard differences. Part of this fruit was fermented in French oak barrels that confer added depth, volume and tannin, none of which Montestefano lacks, in my view. As such, the 2011 could use a few years in bottle to fully come together. It is deeply impressive today, though. That much is obvious. Hints of sage, smoke, lavender and dried flowers add nua ...Read More »

2001 Rivetti La Spinetta "Valeirano" Barbaresco

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated medium red. Highly perfumed aromas of rose petal and marzipan ("like Serralunga Barolo in its perfume," notes Rivetti). Then powerful, vibrant and deep, with an almost Barolo-like density and plushness. Thanks to acidity a half-gram higher than that of the other 2001 Barbarescos the wine maintains superb vinosity and perfume in the mouth, and carries its high alcohol gracefully. Finishes with building, noble tannins and terrific persistence. (From Treiso; this rocky vineyard is more than a hundred meters higher than Rivetti's Gallina ...Read More »

2007 Rivetti La Spinetta "Valeirano" Barbaresco

94 points James Suckling: "There is some serious richness and intensity here, with plums, fresh flowers, and sweet tobacco on the nose and palate. Full bodied, with round and soft tannins and a long finish. A fascinating wine." (3/2011) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Suave and silky, this red boasts wild aromas and flavors of menthol and forest underbrush to complement its sweet cherry and berry notes. Opulent and dense, with complexity and a lingering aftertaste of fruit, woodsy spices and mineral. (BS)" (12/2011) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barbaresco Vigneto Valeirano, on the other hand, is the most clenched and unexpressive of th ...Read More »

2012 Castello di Verduno Barbaresco

91 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barbaresco is a terrific example of the vintage at its best. Freshly cut roses, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon all lift from the glass. Mid-weight and refreshing, with lively acidity to balance the radiant fruit, the 2012 is everything Barbaresco can be; open-knit, seductive and just plain delicious. Drink it over the next handful of years. I hadn't tasted the Castello di Verduno wines in a number of years, so I was very pleased to get reacquainted with this historic producer. The wines have improved dramatically over the last few years, b ...Read More »

2005 Bruno Giacosa "Santo Stefano" Barbaresco

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Barbaresco Santo Stefano is striking in its beauty. This firm, structured wine bursts from the glass with layers of dark red fruit, spices, flowers and menthol. Medium in body, the wine possesses notable inner beauty in a transparent, almost weightless style. There is superb pedigree here, not to mention tons of class. Once again the Santo Stefano bottling delivers the goods. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025." (10/08) 91(+?) points Stephen Tanzer: "ood medium red. Black cherry and camphor on the rather B...

1998 Rivetti La Spinetta "Starderi" Barbaresco

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated deep red. Knockout nose combines sappy red berries, medicinal black cherry, clove spice and a strong floral perfume. Great sweetness on entry, then lively and firm, with superb intensity and grip. Here the thoroughly buffered tannins come across as remarkably fine. Finishes with an explosion of fresh berry flavor." (12/2000) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of ripe fruit, such as strawberry and fresh flowers. Full, round and delicious now, but a slightly chewy tannin structure still. Give it a little more time.--1998 Piedmont blind retrospective (2008). Best aft ...Read More »

2011 Produttori del Barbaresco "Pora" Barbaresco Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Broad and brooding, this muscular Barbaresco packs in black cherry, tar, licorice and spice flavors. More about power than finesse, with a long finish. Best from 2019 through 2035.—B.S" (6/2016) 92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is sweet, round and sensual. Beautifully layered in the glass, the Pora is absolutely exquisite, with plenty of sweet red cherry, plum, mint and spice notes woven throughout. The Pora is typically the most open of the Produttori's nine Riservas, as it is once again this year. There is so much to like here. (AG)" (12/2015)

1999 Rivetti La Spinetta "Valeirano" Barbaresco

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full medium red. Initially mute nose showed some superripe berry, floral and oak notes as the wine opened in the glass. The thickest and sweetest of these '99s, but also solid and minerally. A big, rich, deep Barbaresco with a sappy core of fruit. Finishes with a spreading, palate-coating sheet of sweet tannins." (12/2002) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Fabulous nose of crushed blueberry and pressed flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety, round tannins and a long, rich finish. '99 Piedmont blind retrospective (2009). Best from 2010 through 2015. 500 cases made."

1998 Rivetti La Spinetta "Gallina" Barbaresco

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated deep red. Deep but reticent aromas of ripe cherry and spicy oak. Very densely packed but showing less flesh today than Rivetti other '98s. Quite unevolved but already displays a steely core of spice and mint. A powerful, rather musclebound Barbaresco that finishes with superb length and fine, dusty tannins. Rivetti's '98s should be long-lived. (ST)" (11/2000) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The complex, elegant 1998 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina exhibits aromas and flavors of pepper, cedar, black cherries, plums, soy, earth, and new oak.

2000 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco Riserva (1.5L - some lightly torn labels)

98 points James Suckling: "The nose alone on this is reason enough to buy this. Rich and decadent with dried meats, dried mushrooms, ripe fruits, all tied together by flowers and a light cigar box character. The palate isn't bad either, loads of dried fruits, full-bodied and rich. Total decadence with a wild character. Makes me smile." (5/2012) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is as it always has been; impeccably refined, nuanced and silky from start to finish. I have tasted (or drunk!) this wine at least a dozen times since it was first released. The bouquet shows the faintest sig ...Read More »

2013 Sottimano "Cotta" Barbaresco (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "As always, the 2013 Barbaresco Cottà is a wine of amplitude and breadth. Sweet dark cherry, pomegranate, mint, spices and leather meld together effortlessly. The Cottà has a bit less delineation and nuance than some of the other wines in the range, but more immediacy and mid-palate juiciness. As the years have passed, so many wines in this lineup have improved, but the Cottà has remained pretty much static, for better or worse. (AG)" (12/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "A tannic young wine with backbone and structure. Medium body, berry and walnut character and a chewy finish. Needs ...Read More »

94 points Vinous: "A dazzling wine of pure finesse, the 2013 Barbaresco Fausoni is supremely beautiful. For the first time I can remember in fifteen years of visiting this estate, the Fausoni is refined in its tannins. Sweet floral notes meld into a core of translucent fruit in an alluring, captivating Barbaresco that is super-impressive. The level of precision here is just magnificent. This is one of the best young Fausonis - if not the best - I have tasted at Sottimano. (AG)" (12/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "Pretty aromas of dried strawberry and orange peel.

2007 Rivetti La Spinetta "Gallina" Barbaresco

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barbaresco Vigneto Gallina is focused and nicely articulated. This is a rather firm, nuanced Gallina from La Spinetta with gorgeous length, tons of detail and fabulous overall balance. It is at once more concentrated and also deeper than the Bordini, so another few years in bottle seem a prerequisite. The Gallina is the most improved wine the estate’s lineup. The 2007 is quite possibly the most polished, elegant Gallina I have ever tasted here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.
