The 2021 vintage is not yet rated, but check out the review for the 2019/2020 vintages:

NYR-94 pts Vinous Galloni (2020 Vintage)
The 2020 Barbaresco Vallegrande is a classy, elegant wine. Dark cherry, spice, leather, tobacco, incense, rose petal and gravel are all finely cut. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2020 packs quite a punch. Power and finesse come together here in grand style. Spice, menthol, melted road tar and licorice linger on the ample, imposing finish.

NYR-94 pts Vinous Galloni (2019 Vintage)
94 Drinking Window 2023 - 2034 From: Focus on Barbaresco – A Close Look at 2019 & 2020 (Oct 2022) The 2019 Barbaresco Vallegrande is broad and ample in the glass. Deeply pitched spice notes open first. Dark and mysterious in the glass, with tons of complexity, the Vallegrande is quite virile in feel, with all its elements impeccably balanced. It's another terrific wine from the Grasso family. The Vallegrande exudes Treiso character. That makes it the quintessential Ca' del Baio Barbaresco.

The most traditional-style Barbaresco they make, grown on the vineyards that surround the winery, aged – as in the past – only in large botti casks (neutral). It represents the elegance of Barbaresco at its very best, without flaunting the muscle of Nebbiolo.

Planting of vineyards: between 1957 and 1999
Type of soil: bluish clayey-limestone marl
Position: facing south-west
Harvest: between the end of September and the beginning of October (2015 was an earlier pick)
Vinification and Aging: Traditional stem-free on-the-skins fermentation for 7 to 15 days in steel at a controlled temperature. The wine matures for 24 months in casks made of Slavonian oak, and is then cellared for 6 months in the bottle prior to release.
