Ratings & Reviews
92 Points - Wine Spectator: 
"A rich, round red, with mint, menthol and licorice aromas and flavors framing a core of cherry and plum fruit. Shows ample tannins on the back end, but the ripe fruit returns in the end. Best from 2024 through 2038. 2,000 cases made, 700 cases imported." - BS (Apr 2023)

91 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2019 Barbaresco Reyna is bright, fruity and forward, all of which make it a fine choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Sweet floral accents, spice and a kick of orange peel lend freshness. There's lovely depth and density here." - Antonio Galloni (Oct 2022)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"Dark fruit with fresh mushrooms and flowers stems. Licorice, too. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Yummy to drink now. Why wait?" (Aug 2022)
