"Dense and austere in flavor, with a muscular structure dominating any fruit. A kernel of blackberry and violet is wrapped tightly, emerging more with air. Fine length. Best from 2013 through 2023. 6,000 cases made." (WS)

"The 2007 Barbaresco Nubiola caresses the palate with layers of round, sumptuous fruit. This is a more generous, enveloping style than the Tulin, and shows just an extra touch more depth. Dark red fruit, sweet spices, flowers, licorice and new leather come together beautifully in this harmonious Barbaresco. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027.

Pelissero is one of my favorite producers in Barbaresco. Year in, year out proprietor Giorgio Pelissero does a fabulous job with all of his wines, from top to bottom." (WA)

"Medium red with a palish rim. Distinctly muted nose shows some musky underbrush. Supple in texture but a bit disjointed, with slightly spiky acids. Appears to have less stuffing to support its tannins than the '06 does. An awkward showing." (IWC)
