Malvira Roero Riserva Trinita DOCG

The Trinità is the most elegant and savory of the three Roero Riservas produced by Malvirà. Perfumes of dried rose, spice, black fruits and mint turn to smoke, iron, tobacco, grilled herbs and strawberry preserves on the palate. Firm, well-balanced tannins lend an indisputable energy and vibrancy to the wine, which will undoubtedly continue to evolve for many years to come.


Wine Advocate on 2016 vintage

The 2016 Roero Riserva Trinità is a lean-bodied wine with light ruby and garnet highlights. The wine shows some pretty fruit tones of cassis and sour cherry, as well as some bitter almond. This Riserva is lean-bodied and easy, with enough structure and acidity to pair with a cheesy lasagna or casserole.


Vinous Media on 2016 vintage

The 2016 Roero Riserva Trinità is wonderfully deep, layered and expressive. Macerated dark cherry, menthol, game, spice, pine, dried flowers and incense build in a virile, imposing Roero loaded with character. I would give the 2016 a year or two in bottle to soften.


Falstaff Magazine on 2015 vintage

Luminous, brilliant ruby red with a gently lightening rust-red edge. Full and profound nose, delicate of rum pot and ripe plums, subtle pepper note, multi-layered. Spreads powerfully on the palate, tightly woven tannins, grippy and present, well integrated, stays on the palate for a long time, powerful in the finish.


Wine Advocate on 2015 vintage

Of these various wines from Malvirà, the 2015 Roero Riserva Trinità is certainly the most complete and integrated. This wine opens to a pretty garnet hue with faded amber highlights. The bouquet is smooth and soft, without the astringent and bitter notes we found in the other wines among these new releases. You can't escape those Nebbiolo tannins, but the wine shows a textured, tightly knit overall approach that works.


International Wine Review on 2015 vintage

Light, earthy notes show on the nose of this lighter bodied Nebbiolo. It offers a soft attack with medium concentration of fruit on the palate and finishes with firm tannins. Needs a little more time in bottle to show its best. Aged 24 months in French oak. The soil of this 14 ha vineyard is made of layers of calcareous clay and sand. The exposition of the vineyard is south and south-west. The Nebbiolo vines are planted on top of the hill while Arneis is planted more towards the bottom.


Vinous Media on 2014 vintage

The 2014 Roero Riserva Trinità is distinguished by its wild, almost feral profile. Some of that is surely the result of the cool, rainy growing season as well. Black cherry, game, licorice, tobacco and spice add character to this decidedly wild Roero from Malvirà.


James Suckling on 2011 vintage

Bright florals such as crushed roses and dried herbs with some gentle spices, too. The tannins are soft and the flavors run pretty ripe, with cherries and plum that lead to a nutty, ripe-tannin finish.



Vinous Media on 2010 vintage

Smoke, iron, tobacco, grilled herbs and expressive red stone fruits hit the palate in the 2010 Roero Riserva Trinità. A spine of firm supporting tannin gives the wine much of its energy and vibrancy. The 2010 is going to need a few years to fully come together, but it shows significant promise. Trinità is the most savory and also the most complete of the three 2010 Riservas. This is terrific showing from Malvirà and proprietor Roberto Damonte.


Wine Spectator on 2010 vintage

A dense, muscular red, unyielding for now, with tightly wound cherry, berry and tobacco flavors. Stays persistent on the finish, showing potential. Best from 2017 through 2024.


Falstaff Magazine on 2009 vintage

Brilliant ruby ​​with a garnet edge. The nose shows notes of plums, raspberries, some peach, fine and balanced. Solid tannin on the palate, sweet fruit, persistent in the back area, supple.


International Wine Review on 2007 vintage

An outstanding Nebbiolo with a bit of age on it. The 2007 Trinita offers an umami nose of mushrooms, herbs, and cloves. The palate is silky smooth with deep, savory flavors that mirror the bouquet. The tannins are still firm and dry, but the wine would pair beautifully with game, specially rabbit and duck.


Vinous Media on 2007 vintage

The 2007 Roero Riserva Trinita opens with beautifully articulated candied cherries, crushed flowers, spices and menthol. This is the most pointed and focused of the estate's three Roeros in 2007. Freshly cut flowers and mint add lift on the energetic finish. This is another terrific showing from Malvira. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Wine Advocate on 2006 vintage

The 2006 Roero Riserva Trinita shows a touch more depth and sweetness in its fruit than the Mombeltramo, with lovely persistence on the palate, and a round, silky finish for a young Nebbiolo. This should be even better in another year or two, but it is already pretty delicious. Sweet red cherries, roses, licorice and smoke linger on the vibrant, polished close. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

Wine Advocate on 2005 vintage

I am very grateful that Malvirà decided to send me this back vintage, made 15 years ago, because understanding the aging trajectory of these samples is not easy. The 2005 Roero Riserva Trinità—preciously sent to me with plastic wrap to protect its label—shows us the potential of aged Roero. I am impressed. The wine is not totally linear, and in fact, it offers some disjointed tones along the way; but there is a lot of personality with dried blackberry, aniseed, cola, licorice, dried herb and almond. I also get rusty nail and ferrous earth. The tannins are gritty and textured. Tasting this wine was indeed a very special experience.


Vinous Media on 2005 vintage

The 2005 Roero Riserva Trinità is a gorgeous wine redolent of perfumed raspberries, cherries, flowers and sweet spices. Today the tannins are somewhat unresolved, but with some patience the wine should turn in to a gem. The integrity and purity of fruit - not to mention the wine's balance - are all first-class.
