Falstaff Magazine (94)- "Luminous, brilliant ruby red with a gently lightening rust-red edge. . Shows many layers. Opens on eucalyptus and mint, a hint of cassis and blackberry, raspberry jam. Initially fresh and fruity and clear on the palate, with a high rate of drinkability, shows great fruit with tightly woven tannins with plenty of tension, complex and elegant right through to the finale."
International Wine Review (92)- "A classic Nebbiolo from Roero, the single wineyard Mombeltramo reveals intriguing scents of rose petals and tobacco. It offers a silky, medium weight palate of dried red berries with herbal and dark loam notes. Finishes very long with round, firm tannins. Matured in French oak for 24 months. The soil of the 1.5 ha Mombeltramo vineyard is more calcareous than the Trinita vineyard and it's exposition is more easterly. The wines from this vineyard are particularly austere in their first years of life and become softer over time. "
Wine Advocate (90)- "The Malvirà 2015 Roero Riserva Mombeltramo offers candied fruit and even a touch of cherry cough drop with aniseed and licorice. Those spicy licorice tones are present throughout these red wines from Malvirà, and they pop up in a few of the estate's white wines as well. The tannins are silky and integrated, yet that nervous rambunctious quality you get with Nebbiolo is ever present."
