91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - February 2008
($80) Saturated, deep ruby-red. Flamboyant aromas of plum, strawberry, leather and dried flowers, with a pronounced roasted oak component. Then rich and chewy yet somehow suave in the mouth, with dark fruit flavors complicated by game, underbrush and minerals. Impressively dense, fat, large-scaled barbera with a mellow, very long finish featuring lush, silky tannins and considerable sweetness. Hardly your typical barbera, and that's not meant as a complaint! This is a joint project involving Coppo, Chiarlo, Vietti, Prunotto, Braida and Berta. (Folio Fine Wine Partners, Napa, CA)
