Here it is the wine's precision and energy - both hard to come by in 2011 - that really stand out. Pine, mint, chalk, bright red berries, blood orange and white pepper are some of the signatures in a brilliant, finely-cut Barbaresco that captures the best of both the vintage and this site. Don't miss it! -- Antonio Galloni

A peppery, spicy style, this displays cherry, eucalyptus, tar and black pepper aromas and flavors. Firmly tannic, yet with a core of concentrated sweet fruit, tobacco and tea accents on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2033. – BS

Gorgeous aromas of plums, spices and leather. Cedar undertones. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a beautifully balanced finish. Better in 2018 but already gorgeous to taste.

Perfumed with violet, fragrant ripe berry, leather, dark spice and a balsamic note, this is a textbook Nebbiolo.

Perfumed with violet, fragrant ripe berry, leather, dark spice and a balsamic note, this is a textbook Nebbiolo. The elegant palate offers Morello cherry, cranberry, white pepper and star anise while firm but ultrarefined tannins provide support. It's already delicious but has the structure to cellar for several years or more. Drink 2017–2026.

The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is a round and ripe wine with dark fruit, black cherry and black current. The Ovello vineyard expression is normally one of the lightest and more elegant wines in this Riserva series, but this is not the case in this vintage. There's more brawn and muscle than I remember in the past. In contrast, however, the mouthfeel is more streamlined and delineated than expected. - Monica Larner
