A very clean and focused 2012 with ultra-fine tannins that are ripe and polished. Full-bodied, dense and balanced. Wonderful harmony. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator, November 2016
Rich and elegant, this exhibits cherry, strawberry, spice and mineral aromas and flavors, with hints of licorice and tobacco. All the elements convene on the long, lacy finish. Best from 2018 through 2029. – BS

This is a serious... Orange peel, mint, sweet red cherry and cranberry give the 2012 much of its lifted, aromatically expressive personality, but the 2012 is far from an easygoing Barbaresco. It packs a serious punch. This is a serious, structured Barbaresco that will improve over the next decade or more, as well as a terrific effort for the year. The 2012 spent 30 months in oak, 70% cask and 30% neutral oak.
