The 2017 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo (with 10,000 bottles released) has a mineral character and a sleek, firm approach that gives this wine its special identity. The wine is polished, almost glossy in texture with blackcurrant, plum and wild rose, and the tannins are gripping, although the Rio Sordo sports a lean to medium-rich density overall.--Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Delivers depth and velvety texture, which are a perfect foil for the saturated cherry and raspberry fruit flavors. Underlined by mineral and spice notes, this is harmonious and long, with a mineral aftertaste. Feels approachable now, but this has structure and will age beautifully. Best from 2025 through 2043. —B.S.--Wine Spectator

The 2017 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Rio Sordo Riserva is lively and juicy. The nose takes time to open up but when it does it is lovely with sweetly floral notes, and on the palate there are black cherries and brambly fruits, a little cinnamon and notes of cream and spice. The texture is velvety with lots of gravelly, quite firm tannins and a nice freshness. These wines are made in a traditional style but with a focus on acidity and freshness giving it a brightness and intensity that punctuates the soft, caressing texture. Wait 1 – 2 years. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

The 2017 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo shows the natural intensity of the year, and yet retains a good bit of the aromatic lift that is so typical of Nebbiolo at its best. Silky, perfumed and poised, the Rio Sordo is impressive in this tasting. Spice and floral notes lift a core of red-toned fruit in this mid-weight yet packed Barbaresco from the Produttori. This has very fine potential. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The nose offers cedar, raspberry and balsamic notes suggesting camphor. On the chewy palate, tight, fine-grained tannins support ripe Morello cherry, licorice, mint and a hint of coffee bean. Drink through 2029. - Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
