"100% Nebbiolo planted in sandy soils with Southern exposure. Maceration on the skins for 6-8 days with frequent punchdowns followed by fermentation in barrique. Then aged in barriques (50% of them new) for 18 months." —importer
"Bright red berry, blue flower, chopped herb, menthol and cake spice aromas lift out of the glass. The bright, elegantly structured palate delivers juicy Morello cherry, raspberry jelly, white pepper, anise and a hint of game while fine-grained tannins provide polished support. Drink through 2022." —Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Iron, smoke, white truffles, menthol, spices and anise are some of the many notes that meld together in the 2012 Roero La Val dei Preti. Juicy and expressive in this vintage, the Val dei Preti is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. I wouldn't wait too long, as the mid-weight structure suggests the 2012 is best suited to medium-term drinking, but all the elements are very nicely balanced just the same. Drinking window: 2015 - 2022." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
