92 points Kerin O'Keefe (Wine Enthusiast): "Tight, tannic, young and primary, this has subtle aromas of red berry, forest floor and leather. The firm, racy palate offers unripe cherry, white pepper and a hint crushed herb set against a backbone of fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Drink: 2025–2031. (Sep 2022)"
91 points Decanter: "A Barbaresco full of assertive character, this is youthful and almost estery on the nose, focused on red berries with a veneer of sweet spices. The palate is austere due to firm acidity integrated with very youthful fruit. The tannins are crunchy, the overall profile of the wine almost tart at the moment but lively and tense to follow. It's the result of a blend of Rabajà and Faset MGAs, aged in big oak vessels - a very traditional Barbaresco recipe. Drinking Window: 2023-2044. (Jan 2022)"
