Antonio Galloni, Vinous:
"91+ points. A powerful, intense wine, the 2012 Barbaresco Ronchi offers notable depth and intensity. Dark cherry, plum, licorice, tobacco and smoke, along with the wine's formidable tannic clout, give the 2012 its distinctive, brooding personality. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2012 for at least a few years, as this is a decidedly structured, tannic Barbaresco."
The top cuvee from this producers estate vineyard (not to be confused with their straight “Barbaresco”), the “Ronchi” bottling is a fantastic, pure expression of the Nebbiolo grape from an incredible site. It’s quite enjoyable to drink now with a good two hour decant and some robust fare but this wine is just beginning to strut its stuff and will benefit greatly from a couple more years in the cellar.
