«Sweet raspberries, red currants, flowers, mint, spices and blood orange all meld together in Socré’s 2011 Barbaresco. This fleshy, supple Barbaresco is absolutely gorgeous today. The 2011 stands out for its brightness and exceptional purity..» Score: 92
A. Galloni / Vinous

«The Piacentino family continues their rise into the upper echelon of producers in Barbaresco with these two very pretty 2011s.This year I have a slight preference for the straight Barbaresco, as the Roncaglie is a bit marked by oak. This site on the southern side of town seems to be intrinsically better suited to a more finessed style of Barbaresco..»
