Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2007 Barbaresco Ovello is another huge wine. It is quite powerful at first, but then finds its typical focus through the mid-palate and into the finish. Ovello is one of the coolest sites in Barbaresco, and that austerity comes through, even in 2007. Still the wine possesses terrific depth and sheer volume in its expressive dark red fruit, flowers and mint. There is every reason to believe the Ovello will turn out to be even better than this note suggests. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (Oct 2011)
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.
