Valérie Dufour rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Confession: this is my favorite wine these days. I love the producer, I went to this family winery last year when I visited the Piémont and all their products are spectacular. This is their entry level Barbera d'Asti. It is plush, full of black fruit, but also with notes of smoke and a finale on the bitterness. It is a great wine and I keep buying it over an over and over. It is widely available at the SAQ. It is a specialty product, but you can get it online and they usually have it at the SAQ Depot in the Marché central in Montréal. Quality is pretty consistent vintage after vintage. More suitable for fall and winter type meals.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
