93 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012
(just 200 cases produced): Bright medium ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines crushed blackberry, violet, licorice and crushed pepper. Juicy and sharply delineated, with terrific inner-mouth energy to the flavors of black fruits, spices and mint. Classy, firmly built wine with an enticing saline complexity on the back end and solid tannic spine. Finishes with a medicinal reserve and a suggestion of bitter chocolate. As in other recent successful vintages here, this is one of a handful of outstanding nebbiolos made outside Italy's Piedmont region.
