Scarpetta

Barbera del Monferrato 2017

Very extracted but still with a good acidity to balance it out. 14.5 alcohol but not hot, just a big Barbera. Delivers for the money — 5 days ago

Crivelli

Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato 2017

Every now and again I CRAVE a Ruche (or Rouchet). Grapey and blackberryish, but not too over the top. Some underbrush and violets too. Crunchy and vibrant in the mouth. Will go well (if there’s any left) with my Tapulon all’ Borgomanero. — a month ago

Sottimano

Fausoni Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2016 Barbaresco Fausoni is another superb wine in this lineup of 2016 Barbarescos from the Sottimano family. Bright floral and citrus overtones give the 2016 a vibrant, chiseled feel. Sweet red/purplish berry fruit, blood orange, spice, menthol rose petal and lavender are some of the many notes that flesh out in this super-expressive, mid-weight Barbaresco from Sottimano. Aromatically lifted, dense on the palate and also very structured, the 2016 is a very complete Fausoni. The 2016 finishes with tremendous persistence and a classic sense of austerity that is compelling. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2019) — 7 days ago

Giuseppe Cortese

Rabajà Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2016

Delectable Wine
9.4

The 2016 Barbaresco Rabajà is fresh, vibrant and pulsing with energy, all signatures of this important Barbaresco vintage. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, smoke, dried herbs and menthol are all wonderfully alive in the glass. This is such an expressive and vivid wine. Layers of aromatic and flavor intensity really come alive with aeration. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2019) — 7 days ago

Barbera del Monferrato Superiore Cima riserva della Casa Barbera

One of the best Barbera’s of Monferrato together with Braida! Very good juice after 12 years. I visited Accornero in 2010, great producer and lovely people! — a month ago
