This treasure of the wine world is super-quality stuff, reflecting the very best Barbaresco practices and a broad source of the village's top Nebbiolo fruit. Wonderfully fine, mineral acid and tannins enliven the beautifully bright, floral and delicately complex nose and palate. Absolutely classic and consummate, a slight decant reveals everything we hope for from this charming, fresh style. For an extremely modest price this superb example will cellar for decades and lives up to Parker's touchstone description as "one of the very finest values in ageworthy wine from anywhere in the world". 
95/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, August 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"​There’s a smell that I call ‘liquorice root’, which is a real smell, and it’s not the black sweet stuff, it’s the brown stick-like stuff that you can find if you look about, anyway, it’s one of my signatures for great Nebbiolo. Works like a pheromone on me, or something like that. This has it in spades, along with red and black fruits, a little tea and herb, roses and spice. It’s only medium bodied, and very precise and clear in its delivery – it fairly sparkles with purity – then a gentle rasp of kitten’s tongue tannin, fresh acidity, and a pretty long finish, a little dusting of spice as it delivers its magic. It goes well with a decant, but it’ll stay decades in the cellar. Yes."
90/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2013 Vintage)
"The 2013 is a tasty, easygoing Barbaresco to drink over the next decade or more. There is good depth in the glass, with pretty notes of tobacco, licorice, herb and worn-in leather that add nuance. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate and a closing burst of acidity meld into the finish. The tannins are present, but they are also pretty much buried by the creaminess of the fruit. A lovely impeccably balanced, understated wine that offers considerable regional and varietal expression. In other words: textbook. The Produttori's Barbaresco has a track record of aging well, but the 2013 is also surprisingly accessible. It should drink well with minimal cellaring."
