  • Score: 96 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast Made with vines planted in 2012 in the celebrated Vigna Rionda cru in Serralunga d'Alba, this gorgeous, fragrant red boasts enticing scents of red forest berries, camphor, rose and potpourri. All about finesse, the vibrant, elegantly structured palate delivers juicy raspberry, red cherry, licorice and iron. It's impeccably balanced by taut, refined tannins and bright acidity. Drink through 2028. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 93 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Ester Canale Rosso is a beautiful, beguiling wine. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, pine and blood orange give the 2018 striking inner perfume and tons of charm. This mid-weight, pretty translucent Langhe Nebbiolo captures all the seduction of Rionda. Drink it over the next decade or so. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 93 Vintage 2017 Wine Spectator Bright cherry and raspberry flavors are enhanced by floral, eucalyptus, iron and tar notes in this burly red. Aggressive tannins are tightly wound, but not overly astringent, on the finish. Best from 2025 through 2050. 258 cases made, 75 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 94 Vintage 2016 Wine Advocate The Ester Canale Rosso 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo pours from the bottle with a light garnet or ruby color. The bouquet is beautifully elegant and light, with a big dose of licorice root that is impossible not to notice. There is dried cherry and cassis, and the wine presents a lean and fresh approach to the palate. This Langhe Nebbiolo is built to go the extra mile, and its late release demonstrates.
