91 points Wine Spectator
"A fresh, chewy, medium- to full-bodied red, offering minerally tar and iron notes matched to caraway seed and woodsy spice accents that form a savory overtone, layered with sour cherry and citrus peel fruit flavors. Best from 2021 through 2026."

91 points Falstaff
"Fine, fruity and spicy bouquet with notes of cherries, wild berries and hints of spice. Juicy start on the palate, then aromatic, with cherries, fine tannins and a long finish."

Jancis Robinson
"Maceration between 25 and 40 days depending on the batch. ‘If you have a good amount of tannins it will keep the wine fresh for many years. We have large casks that do not impart tannins and our Nebbiolo has little tannins in the skin and much more in the pips. To break the endocarp [the innermost part of the flesh around the pips] you need alcohol and hence the long skin maceration.’ The grapes come from plots at between 450 and 600 m, vinified separately and then blended.
Pale ruby. Pretty, perfumed nose of cherry and wild strawberry and ripe raspberry. Still a little compact and youthful on the nose as well as palate with vibrant raspberry fruit that is still a little austere, and with fantastic, finely sculpted tannins. Lively cranberry finish. Definitely needs more time in bottle. 17+/20 points. (WS)"

Vinous Reverie Notes
The vineyards are located in terraces divided by dry stone walls that can only be worked manually, without being able to use tractors for both cultivation and harvest. Color: it is a wine with a ruby ​​red color with garnet reflections. Bouquet: the nose is fine and elegant, with hints of red and violet fruit, with toasted and leather notes. Taste: it is a well-balanced, structured and fresh wine.
