95pts Vinous

"The most overt wine in the range, 2016 Barbaresco Cole is powerful and bombastic, as it so often is, with a real sense of gravitas and tons of sheer character. Plum, chocolate, spice, new leather and sweet French oak are all kicked up a few notches in this decidedly opulent, massive Barbaresco from Moccagatta." 11/19

 

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Notes

"The 2016 Barbaresco Cole (with only 3,000 bottles made) offers toasted notes of espresso rind, dark fruit and light tones of exotic spice. The wine is juicy, generous and fruit-forward with lots of dark concentration and saturated berry notes. The wine is bigger than your standard Barbaresco, and it's ready to serve with marinated, grilled steak tips." 06/19

 

 

 

92pts James Suckling

"A very fruit-forward and ripe Barbaresco with lots of toasted barrique character coming through, giving a meaty and blackberry-tinged impression. Hints of dried cloves. Extremely chewy on the full-bodied palate with blockbuster fruit and dense tannins. Some may consider it overdone, but others will love the brashness. Drink from 2027." 11/19
