93+ points Vinous, Antonio Galloni: "Castello di Verduno's 2016 Barbaresco is bright, precise and wonderfully sculpted, all in the mid-weight style that is such a signature of the Castello di Verduno wines. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2016 needs at least a few years in bottle to unwind, and time beyond that to really enter its prime drinking window. Today, the 2016 is primary, floral and full of vitality. The straight Barbaresco is built on a core of Faset, with pieces from Rabajà and Rabajà-Bas that don't make it into the vineyard designate bottlings. This is a stellar showing."
Damn this is good! It shows the power of the vintage but superlative finesse. An absolute classic Barbaresco. - Marcus
