Vinous – 2013 Barbaresco – 92/100


«Socré’s 2013 Barbaresco is a terrific example of the vintage at its best. The aromatics alone are enticing. Sweet dark cherry, plum, sage, lavender, rose petal mint and licorice give the 2013 a dark, mysterious quality that is hard to fully describe. Deep and yet also weightless as only Nebbiolo can be, the 2013 hits all right notes. This is a vivid and impeccable Barbaresco from Socré.» 

2013 Barbaresco. Score: 92/100.

Gambero Rosso – 2017 Review


« […] The growth path both in terms of quality and interest, also gained with important prizes and reviews from international critics, has been constant. The flagship of the company is the Roncaglie Barbaresco, which is released after a long aging in the winery, but the whole production is properly looked after.

A slightly modern personality in the 2012 Roncaglie Barbaresco, with a hint of oak which give complexity to a fruity taste. Great and rich taste in mouth, harmonic, with an extremely long and elegant finish.

Evident spices, but also fruit in the 2013 Barbaresco; the taste is less voluminous, but still harmonic and structured.»

Vinibuoni d’Italia – 2017 Review


The center and hart of the winery are the vineyards in Barbaresco, about three hectares situated below the Socré cascina, on medium height hills, with a splendid panoramic position and a great south and west exposure, in Roncaglie cru.

From these vineyards is generated the 2012 Barbaresco Roncaglie which get the coveted Crown. It charms with scents of hazelnut wafer, orange peel and light quinine. Good body with fruity final and tannin still in evolution. A modern wine that doesn’t forget tradition.

Very good also the straight Barbaresco 2013, pleasant to drink, tasty and structured.

«Socré has been active since 1871, when an ancestor of the current owners bought the farm, whose strange name comes from the clog crafting practiced by the previous owner. The company has always been to exclusively wine oriented, recently strengthened by additional purchases in Alba and Asti areas.» 2012 Barbaresco Roncaglie, 91/100

Vinous – 2012 Barbaresco – 92/100


«The 2012 Barbaresco is dark, plummy and absolutely delicious, with plenty of up-front fruit and pure appeal. Sweet tobacco, rose petal, mint, cherries and licorice open up in the glass. The tannins retain a touch of firmness, but otherwise, this is a hugely appealing Barbaresco, especially considering it is the estate’s entry-level wine.» Barbaresco Roncaglie 2012. Score: 92/100.
