  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine EnthusiastAromas of toasted oak, charred underbrush and dark-skinned fruit form the nose. The ripe palate offers blackberry jam, vanilla and mocha alongside rounded tannins. Enjoy through 2024 Shelf Talker Full Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2015 Wine Spectator“A delicious example of Barbera, sumptuous and infused with plum, black cherry, iron, leather and spice flavors. Powerful, with a sense of grace and a terrific aftertaste. Could benefit from some bottle aging. Drink now through 2025. 3,000 cases made, 50 cases imported.” Shelf Talker Full Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Wine AdvocateThe Garesio 2015 Nizza Riserva doles out extra richness and concentration. The wine pours to an inky dark appearance with ripe aromas of plummy fruit, dried cherry and blackberry preserves. Those dark fruit tones are backed by oak spice, tar and tobacco. Those spicy notes play a big role in the wine's DNA, although they remain carefully balanced and folded into this Riserva's rich texture. This is a great choice for barbecued spare ribs with spicy sauce. Full Review
