2013 Nada Fiorenzo "Montaribaldi" Barbaresco (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "An addition to the range, the 2013 Barbaresco Montaribaldi is magnificent. Dark spices, lavender, sage, menthol and dark cherries are front and center. Large-scaled, ample and super-expressive, the Montaribaldi captures the power and intensity of this site. Sweet mentholated notes round out the finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. The 2013 spent two full years in cask. It needs time to shed some tannin, but it is fabulous even at this early stage. These are some of the best Barbarescos I have ever tasted from Bruno Nada and his son, Danilo. The late ha ...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)

2013 Orlando Abrigo "Rocche Meruzzano" Barbaresco

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "You can't go wrong with a classic wine like the 2013 Barbaresco Meruzzano. This pristine Nebbiolo reveals variety-driven tones of crushed granite and flint with finely-tuned berry notes of cassis, wild strawberry and rose hip. The aromas show a very clean and focused quality. In the mouth, this pretty Barbaresco offers good dimension and finesse with silky, linear tannins. (ML)" (6/2016) Vinous: "Abrigo's 2013 Barbaresco Meruzzano is deep, powerful and intense. Black cherry, tobacco, smoke, scorched earth, licorice and menthol give the 2013 much of its distinctive ...Read More »

2013 Ronchi Barbaresco

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This opens with a nose of mature black-skinned fruit, leather, truffle, blue flower and cake spice. On the smooth palate, notes of cake spice and star anise back up ripe black cherry and raspberry compote. Firm, velvety tannins provide the framework. (KO)" (10/2016) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A tightly wound red, with firm, raspy tannins that make the future difficult to predict. With air, sweet cherry, licorice and spice flavors emerge. Fans out nicely on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2032. (BS, Web-2017)"

2013 Gaja Barbaresco

96 points Vinous: "The 2013 Barbaresco is fabulous. In fact, this is one of the best Barbarescos I have tasted at Gaja in many years. Vibrant, perfumed and beautifully sculpted in the glass, the 2013 possesses tons of understated intensity. Sweet red cherry, mint, white pepper and anise are all lifted in the glass. The 2013 is an almost shockingly classic Barbaresco from Gaja. The translucent color, vibrant Nebbiolo fruit and austere but noble tannins represent a move towards a much more traditional style. For readers who can find it, the 2013 is simply a must-have wine. ( ...Read More »

2013 Sottimano "Fausoni" Barbaresco

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. Medium body, pretty integrated tannin ...Read More »

2013 Sottimano "Cottá" Barbaresco

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 »

2013 Rivella "Montestefano" Barbaresco

Guido Rivella had a multi-decade career as the winemaker for Angelo Gaja. Now retired, he and his daughter have a tiny estate in Barbaresco. This production of only three barrels comes from grapes harvested from 0.37 hectares of calcareous clay soil with a southern exposure. Fermentation and maceration in stainless steel tanks for 22-25 days at a controlled temperature. Aged in wood for 14-18 months, then again in bottles for a few months before commercial release.

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 Sottimano "Cottá" Barbaresco

94 points Vinous: "An overachiever in this vintage, the 2011 Barbaresco Cottà is one of the most refined wines I have tasted from this site, where the wines are usually much more overt and powerful in style. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into a core of dark red and black hued stone fruits, tobacco, smoke and new leather. The characteristic pliant, juicy Cottà fruit is there, but it is complemented by expressive floral overtones. There is a pure immediacy to the Cottà that is impossible to miss. (AG)" (10/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and fleshy, exhibiting flavors of plum and black cherry, ...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 »

2004 Rivetti La Spinetta "Starderi" Barbaresco

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Barbaresco Starderi is a knock-out effort. A dark, brooding wine it reveals an array of dark cherries, spices, tar and smoke in a powerful, sinewy style. With each passing moment, it seemingly turns more and more classic in the glass, with only the super-ripe fruit serving as a reminder that this is a more contemporary wine. The balance and use of oak are both masterful. It is easily the finest wine Giorgio Rivetti has ever made, and is also the first wine in the estate's history that can truly challenge for a spot in the top echelon of the zone ...Read More »

2011 Sottimano "Fausoni" Barbaresco New!
2011 Sottimano "Fausoni" Barbaresco

93 points Vinous: "The 2011 Barbaresco Fausoni is unusually supple, sexy and radiant. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, tobacco and mint all lift from the glass. Fausoni often shows firmer, livelier tannins, but the warm 2011 vintage has softened the contours and yielded an inviting, resonant Barbaresco to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet floral notes from these soils rich in sand add the final nuances of complexity. What a gorgeous wine this is. (AG)" (10/2014) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Crushed raspberry, blue flower, tilled soil and graphite aromas lead the nose on this fir ...Read More »

1996 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco Riserva
Bid on this bottle of 1996 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco Riserva (98RP, 97VN, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The utterly perfect, dense ruby/purple-colored 1996 Barbaresco Asili (Red Label Riserva) is a heroic offering brilliantly displaying both power and elegance. The bouquet develops incrementally, offering up aromas of black raspberries, cherries, cigar box, licorice, and leather. The wine impresses with its nuances as well as its extraordinarily rich, dense mid-palate, and a finish that lasts nearly a minute. There is huge tannin, but equally massive concentration, extract, and overall harmony. (RP)" (06/2001)

2007 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco Riserva (3L)

98 points James Suckling: "This will be in the market in 2012. This is full and rich with irresistible silky tannins. This brings more substance and richness than the white label. Lay this down until 2016. 10,000 bottles." (4/2012) 98 points Vinous: "The 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Asili, which I have had several times recently, is pure sensuality. Hard candy, rose petals, sweet red berries and licorice wrap around the palate in one of the silkiest, most refined expressions of Nebbiolo I have ever tasted. A wine of pure sensuality and grace, the 2007 is flat-out stunning. (AG)" (12/2013) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barbaresco ...Read More »

Bid on this 3L-bottle lot of 1989 Gaja "Sorì Tildìn" Barbaresco (3L) (98RP, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 Barbaresco Sori Tildin emerges from the glass with silky tannins that frame a core of perfumed red fruit. The wine continues to show off endless layers of detail. Fruit, acidity and structure; it’s all there in the magical 1989 Sori Tildin. This is another immortal, totally seductive wine from Gaja. As always, the Sori Tildin is the most sculpted and nuanced of Gaja’s single-vineyard wines. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030. (AG)" (02/2010)
