About the wine:

The name means from the "sunny side" (sörì in Piedmontese) of Rio Sordo, a cru well known for elegance. True enough, this noble red has the richness and concentration of an ideal southerly exposure, with the signature finesse of its terroir. Though it may be enjoyed after 1 year, it rewards cellaring of 3-15 years, even more in top vintages.

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Good medium red.  Wild red fruits and rose petal on the perfumed nose and palate.  Intensely flavored and very well delineated; still a touch of reduction but this is much fresher than the Chiaramanti.  Broader than the 2008 but elegant as well.  An attractive midweight with ripe, harmonious acidity." - Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Oct '11)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
(2008 vintage):
"The 2008 Barbaresco Sori’ Rio Sordo wafts from the glass with an enticing array of dried flowers, sweet mountain herbs and worn-in leather. This is a touch fleeting next to the Chiaramonti but it possesses lovely balance in an understated style. This is another strong showing from Ca’ Rome. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023." - Antonio Galloni (Oct 2011)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2008 vintage):
"Good medium red.  More aromatic on the nose than the 2009, showing a strong mineral component to go with the red cherry, raspberry and flowers.  Fresh and pretty in the mouth, with firm acids and tannins sharpening the flavors of red cherry, flowers and spices.  Finishes with very good length.  Lovely Barbaresco." - Stephen Tanzer (Nov/Oct '11)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2008 vintage):
"This exudes cherry, licorice and saline flavors matched to a texture that's almost chewy. Well put together, with plenty of structure for aging. Best from 2014 through 2027." –BS (Dec 31, 2011)
