International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91Good bright dark red. Aromatic nose combines redcurrant, smoke and tobacco. Rich, supple and sweet, with lovely ripe acidity giving balance to the wine. Finishes with rather sweet, soft balance and no aggressiveness. This should offer early appeal.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: November/December 2007
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Very floral, with hints of strawberry. Delicate and aromatic on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots going on. Structured on the palate. Best after 2012. 1,300 cases made.Author: James Suckling
Piedmont, which literally means “foot of the mountain,” produces some of Italy's finest red wines. Its clay, limestone, and sand soils are home to the legendary and wines, made from the extremely age-worthy variety. Dolcetto and Barbera are considered to be more “workhorse” varieties, and produce the largest quantity of wine. The region is tucked in the cool northwest corner of the country, surrounded on three sides by the Alps. Fog often blankets the region, ensuring long, cool growing seasons.
