90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2011
(from the same hillside as Monprivato, in Castiglione Falletto; these vines are around a century old, according to Mascarello): Deep, bright medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, chocolate, licorice and herbs. Superconcentrated and nicely balanced, with mouth-saturating flavors of slightly saline black fruits. Very deep and rather tannic barbera, with a long, slightly roasted finish. From a nebbiolo terroir; in fact, this plot is actually planted to both varieties.
