Wine Advocate 96 points - Showing great persistency and length, the 2010 Barbaresco Ovello is an extremely elegant and refined expression with crushed flowers, forest fruit and strong mineral definition. The Ovello cru (at 300 meters above sea level) overlooks the Tanaro River valley where early morning fog banks appear and temperature shifts are very pronounced thus helping aromatic development of the wine. The results are ethereal and finessed. Drink: 2017-2035. (Jul 2014)
100% Nebbiolo grapes grown in the Ovello Cru, which is one of the premiere sites in the entire Barbaresco wine growing region. Perfectly situated in the hills above the Tanaro RIver with South/Southwest exposure and clay and sandy soil give this wine both elegance and intensity. Delicious now and will age well.
