90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
(from sandy soil in the Roero hills; aged for one year in mostly 25-hectoliter barrels): Medium red. Musky red fruits, flowers, spices, menthol and a whiff of earth on the perfumed nose. Very juicy, fresh nebbiolo with harmonious acidity; more open than the 2008 was at a similar stage. A seriously good, bright nebbiolo bottling that finishes with a touch of minerality, firm tannins and captivating aromatic lift. This can be enjoyed now or held. Ratti has made this wine since 1969, purchasing the grapes from the same families over the entire period.
