  • Score: 87 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate The Garesio 2018 Nizza is a clean and simple expression of Barbera. The wine shows sharp lines and simple fruit flavors of dark blackberry and plum. Sweet tea leaf or aroma of dried apricot gives the wine an easy, open approach. This is a stripped-down and easy red wine. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

  • Score: 93 Vintage 2016 Wine Spectator Underscored by flashy new oak, this red delivers blackberry, black cherry, violet, graphite and toasty oak aromas and flavors. Offers a solid core, but needs time for all the facets to show. Delivers terrific balance and length. Drink now through 2027. 7,000 cases made, 50 cases imported. –BS Shelf Talker Full Page Review
