93 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2009
($480; for 1.5 liters; bottled entirely in magnums) Saturated ruby. Black fruits, violet and minerals on the nose; smells more like vintage port than barbera. Then hugely concentrated and brilliantly delineated, with the energy from strong acidity giving this wine almost painful intensity. Boasts great vinosity and finishes with explosive, spreading persistence. Fruit of steel here. This was Roberto Voerzio's first high-density vineyard and he has always bottled this wine in magnums to underscore that fact. The yield here was just over one pound per vine and the wine, though not bottled until 2008, is as primary as fruit juice. This really transcends the variety.
