91 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2007

An explosion of juicy, spicy black fruits in the mouth, with superb ripeness perfectly leavened by strong acidity. The very long finish hints at shoe polish and leather. This wine now includes some barbera from high-altitude sites in Monforte, which Sandrone purchased in 1999.
