Vinous Media (93)- "The 2017 Roero Riserva Mombeltramo is laced with sweet red cherry, rose petal, spice, mint, kirsch and a touch of blood orange. Translucent and finessed, with lovely depth, the Mombeltramo is very beautiful in 2017. All the elements are so nicely balanced."

Vinous Media (94)- "The 2016 Roero Riserva Vigna Mombeltramo is a heady, explosive wine. Black cherry, menthol, sage, lavender and spice all infuse the palate with tremendous depth.

Malvira Roero Riserva Mombeltramo DOCG 2016

Falstaff Magazine (93)- "Brilliant bright garnet red with a brightening edge. On the nose there is a pronounced scent of mint and mustard seeds, also slightly floral of violets and fresh wild berries. Shows a beautiful fruity play on the palate, juicy freshness meets finely woven tannins, precise from beginning to end, persistent in the finish."
