WS 93 JS 92 Vinous 90 WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Marked by ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and tar flavors, this red is graceful and detailed, with the fruit intensity persisting on the finish. This is well-integrated, and just needs time for the tannins to soften. Excellent length. Best from 2018 through 2030."
According to James Suckling - "Aromas of dried berry, lemon peel and plum follow through to a medium to full body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Bright and delicious. I like both the 2010 and 2011 at the same level but for different reasons. Better in 2015."
According to Antonio Galloni - "The Produttori del Barbaresco's 2011 Barbaresco presents an intriguing combination of the expressive, resonant fruit typical of the vintage wedded to a firm sense of tannin. Rose petal, mint, cherry pit and chalk notes open up on the expressive bouquet and mid-palate before classic Nebbiolo tannins make their presence felt. The flavors are already a touch forward, which suggests the 2011 won't be one of the more longer-lived vintages here, but that is of course in relative terms for a house where the wines typically deliver fine drinking for several decades."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "Always one of the best quality-for-value wines in Italy, this classic Barbaresco delivers quintessential Nebbiolo sensations of rose, black cherry, red berry, cinnamon and a hint of leather. It’s friendly, with firm, round tannins and just enough fresh acidity. Drink now–2020." 14.5% ABV.
