95 points Kerin O'Keefe (Wine Enthusiast): "This opens with a lovely fragrance of perfumed berries, violets, incense and sweet cake spices. Cinnamon, clove and white pepper accent the succulent red cherry and wild raspberry palate. It's fresh and elegant, with a smooth texture and supple tannins. Drink 2016–2029. Alcohol 14.5%. (Nov 2014)"

94 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is a wine of straightforward harmony and genuine richness. The bouquet offers dark fruit, licorice, spice and tobacco. The Ovello cru shows an impressive level of overall opulence. In fact, both the Ovello and the Pajè vineyards have cooler conditions that help them excel in warm vintages like 2009. The tannins are firm and delineated. At the back, the wine offers a lasting sense of structure and character. It is beautiful now and promises an exciting evolution ahead. Drink: 2017-2030. (Jun 2015)"

93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2009 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is one of the more detailed, vibrant wines in this range. Sweet dark red cherries, mint, pine, graphite and crushed flowers all take shape in the glass. The typical high-toned Ovello bouquet, slightly firm tannins and energy are all there, making this one of the more site-specific of the 2009 Riservas. In 2009, the Ovello is a bit more accessible than it usually is, even if I don't quite find the visceral thrill of the very best years. Drink: 2016-2029. (Oct 2013)"

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: "The cooperative offered yet another excellent performance, managing to present fresh, lively selections with plenty of personality and balance even from the torrid 2009 vintage. All the Riservas are sound, particularly Rabajà, Montefico and Pora, with Ovello taking a Tre Bicchieri for its elegant notes of liquorice on the nose and long, potent palate. (2015)"
