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)"

2012 Sottimano "Fausoni" Barbaresco

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sottimano's 2012 Barbaresco Fausoni shows highly impressive results with a smooth entry to the palate followed by bright fruit flavors that are fused with floral accents, spice and licorice. Fausoni reveals pretty transparency with brilliant garnet accents. The aromas are tonic, vibrant and fresh. There's plenty of menthol and cardamon-infused lift on the finish. This is a very satisfying wine that promises a long life ahead. (ML)" (6/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "A fresh, refined 2012 Barbaresco with dark-berry, floral and hints of walnut character. Full body, firm tannins and a ...Read More »

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 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)

2010 Marchesi di Barolo Barbaresco

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Barbaresco offers a classic portrait of a beautiful wine in a celebrated vintage. There’s not much to criticize here: The fruit is fleshy and lively, the aromas are intense and well-defined, and the finish is long and juicy. There’s a playful dusting of white pepper that works exceptionally well to add focus and overall sharpness. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (ML)" (6/2013) 91 points James Suckling: "A red with plum and berry character, plus hints of spice. Full body with chewy tannins and a polished finish. Very well done for the vintage in Barbaresco."

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 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 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.

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.

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 »

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.

2013 Rivella "Montestefano" Barbaresco

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.

It's still very young and needs to open up fully, but the palate already displays breeding and class. It offers ripe black cherry, ground black pepper, licorice and grilled sage alongside tightly wound but fine tannins. Drink 2018–2026." (12/2014)

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.

(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 »

2013 Albino Rocca "Ronchi" Barbaresco

95 points Vinous: "The 2013 Barbaresco Ronchi is superb. Ample and large scaled, as wines from this clay-rich site often are, the Ronchi is firing on all cylinders today. Layers of dark red stone fruit fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. Pine, menthol, anise, citrus peel and tobacco add attractive aromatic overtones, but it is the wine's balance that is most impressive today. Simply put, the Ronchi is a standout." (10/2016)

The bouquet is deep, complex and jumps beautifully from the glass in a mélange of licorice, black cherries, a touch of plum, game, fresh oregano, woodsmoke, soil and a bit of camphor.

Full-bodied, with lovely ripe tannins and a unctuous combination of ripe fruit and light toasty oak. Goes on and on. Fabulous. Greatest wine ever from Bruno Rocca. Best after 2007.

1961 Gaja Barbaresco
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1961 Gaja Barbaresco (95VN, 92WS). Vinous: "An eye-opening wine, the 1961 Barbaresco (Infernot) is one of the very best wines I have tasted from Gaja. The 1961 is impressive on many counts, but I am simply blown away by the sheer richness and depth of the fruit. According to Angelo Gaja, this bottling (see the picture in this article) was the last lot of the 1961 to be bottled and probably spent 8-9 years in cask. Although hard to imagine today, demand for Barolo and Barbaresco was so sporadic back then that wines were bottled only as they were sold, and sales were nothing like they are today. Gaja goes on to add that 1961 was an exceptionally hot year and that the harvest was completely done by the end of September, which was unheard of at the time. The fermenting vats got so hot that ice was added to try to bring temperatures down. Sugars were extremely high, and the wines had a hard time finishing fermentation. A little known fact is that Gaja had to take

Bid on this 3L-bottle lot of 2006 Pelissero "Vanotu" Barbaresco (3L) (OWC - 94ST, 93RP) in original wood. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Aged for 22 months in new barriques . Deep red with ruby highlights. Distinctly blacker on the nose than the Tulin, with hints of black cherry, cassis, licorice, violet and spicy, smoky oak. Broad, silky and voluminous without coming across as heavy thanks to lift from the limestone in the soil. Not yet expressive in the middle palate, but there's serious ripeness and richness here and the major, oak-driven tannins are chewy and sweet. Pelissero took his time to harvest in 2006, and picked these vines late) the wine has a higher-than-normal pH of 3.55. Quite long on the aftertaste. This boasts the structure and complexity for an extended evolution in bottle, but today it's an infant. As impressive a Barbaresco as I've yet tasted from this producer. (ST)" (11/2009)
