James Suckling – 97 "Tasting this Vigna Rionda is such a sensual experience, with the complexity you’d expect from the top-level Barolo, showing hints of iodine, dark mussels, walnuts, dark stones to the fleshy dark cherries and plums. Then it turns a little “bloody,” minty and tarry on the nose. “Dark” and full-bodied with a massive amount of small-grained tannins seamlessly knitting the fruit on the palate, driving it to a very long, mineral finish. Very tight and powerful now, yet seductively rich and full of flesh, too. Shows lots of potential ahead." - 97 Points, James Suckling"Tasting this Vigna Rionda is such a sensual experience, with the complexity you’d expect from the top-level Barolo, showing hints of iodine, dark mussels, walnuts, dark stones to the fleshy dark cherries and plums.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – “Packaged with a special black label, the Massolino 2016 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is only released in the best vintages. Showing the power and the determination of Serralunga d'Alba, the wine is redolent of dried berry, lots of rusty earth and fragrant red rose. These are the typical aromas of this vineyard, and this wine presents them with impeccable integration. To the palate, this Riserva remains open-knit, tightly structured and broad in scope." - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

The Wine Front – “Bright red cherry, mint, potpourri, new leather, liquorice root. So fragrant. Fresh, very fine, tannin has a succulence, and they sit so well within the wine, melting through its core. Red fruits (strawberry in particular), tea and blood orange, and a superb long finish of precision and freshness. A beautiful expression of Vigna Rionda, and one that belies the heat of the vintage.” - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – Outer quote mark The Cavallotto 2016 Barolo Riserva Vignolo is an organic wine that shows superb balance and great intensity. Elegance and power are in fact the twofold hallmark of this iconic vintage. This is a polished and silky wine with an almost glossy or latex-like quality to its tannins (that I love, by the way). This 5,333-bottle production hails from a two-hectare vineyard with 40-year-old vines. It has southwest exposures at a breezy 220 to 310 meters in altitude. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2022)

Wine Enthusiast – Capturing the freshness and finesse of the vintage, this has classic varietal aromas of rose petal, forest berry, camphor and underbrush. Reflecting the nose, the vibrant, focused palate delivers ripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, wild mint and star anise set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it balanced. While you won't have to wait years before enjoying this, it will also age at least another decade or more. Best 2024–2033.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The Cavallotto 2018 Barolo Bricco Boschis (a certified organic wine) is a lovely expression with fruit from one of the most beautiful sites in Castiglione Falletto, measuring 7.3 hectares. The wine is streamlined and tight with forest berry, blackcurrant and spice. It is taut and silky, showing fruit that has been shaped by cool nights and warm days. Bricco Boschis always delivers a special sense of sharpness and focus. Best After 2024 - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

James Suckling – ‘Aromas of ripe raspberries and dark spice follow through to a medium-to full-bodied palate, with some fine, fruit and spice-coated tannin and a medium finish that firms up at the end.’– James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – ‘This wine consistently delivers one of the greatest values to be found in Italian wine. The G.D. Vajra 2018 Barolo Albe has all its cards in play as an immediately enjoyable and extremely food-friendly Nebbiolo. This really is the top of the category in that sense. With straightforward winemaking (fermentation is in steel and aging in large Slavonian oak casks), the wine offers bold cherry, wild plum and plenty of fragrant blue flower and violet. This vintage has the added benefit of softly textured richness.2023-2037’– Monica Larner, Wine Advocate,

James Suckling – A firm and polished red with berries and spices, like nutmeg and pepper. Orange peel, too. Medium body. Fresh and energetic finish.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – This is certainly one of the most popular and versatile wines made in Italy, and deservedly so. The well-priced G.D. Vajra 2019 Barolo Albe shows some ripe fruit and softness with cherry, dried raspberry and crushed rose. This vintage is similar in character to the 2016 release in that both vintages offer a linear style with good structure at the back. The mouthfeel is polished and long, affording accessibility and complexity too.

Barolo, nestled within the picturesque landscape of the Langhe hills in Piedmont, holds a legendary status in the world of wine. Made exclusively from the Nebbiolo grape, Barolo wines possess a unique combination of richness, elegance, and longevity. Their signature deep garnet hue is accompanied by a complex bouquet of roses, tar, and cherry, evolving beautifully as they age. The region's distinctive microclimate and calcareous-clay soils contribute to the wine's pronounced tannins and acidity, making them exceptionally age-worthy. As the years pass, a mature Barolo softens, revealing a harmonious interplay of flavors, with hints of truffle, dried fruit, and spices. Centuries of winemaking traditions in the Barolo region have refined cultivation and fermentation processes, ensuring each bottle offers a pure expression of its terroir. A glass of Barolo is not just a taste of wine but a journey through time and tradition.
Barolo is a small town located in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, nestled within the scenic Langhe hills. This region, with its undulating landscapes and historic vineyards, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, acknowledging its significant cultural and winemaking heritage. Only a short drive from Turin, the heart of Piedmont, Barolo is a magnet for wine enthusiasts, historians, and travelers seeking a taste of authentic Italian viticulture.
Wines from Barolo, often referred to as the "King of Wines," are renowned for their exceptional quality. Made from the Nebbiolo grape, they're characterized by rich flavors, deep complexity, and an ability to age gracefully. In terms of affordability, Barolo wines can be viewed as an investment. While there are younger, more accessible versions available at moderate price points, older vintages and those from prestigious producers can command higher prices. However, the price is reflective of the meticulous care, tradition, and expertise that goes into each bottle, making it a worthy addition to any wine collection.
What sets Barolo apart is its unique terroir. The region's microclimate, with warm days and cool nights, and its calcareous-clay soils contribute to the distinctive characteristics of Barolo wines. The misty hills of Langhe ensure the Nebbiolo grapes mature slowly, developing deep flavors and pronounced tannins. Additionally, the centuries-old winemaking traditions passed down through generations, coupled with modern innovations, make Barolo a repository of both history and contemporary wine expertise.
Barolo is most renowned for its red wines made exclusively from the Nebbiolo grape. These wines are celebrated for their deep garnet hue, high tannin content, and complex flavors of roses, tar, cherries, and, as they age, hints of truffles and dried fruits. Aged Barolo wines, in particular, offer a harmonious blend of flavors and aromas, making them a favorite among wine connoisseurs worldwide.
Determining the best wines from Barolo can be subjective as it depends on individual palate preferences. However, certain producers and vintages have gained international acclaim. Producers like Giacomo Conterno, Bruno Giacosa, and Aldo Conterno are often heralded for their exemplary Barolo wines. The region's Grand Cru vineyards, such as Cannubi, Sarmassa, and Rocche dell'Annunziata, consistently yield outstanding wines. While each vintage has its nuances, some, like the 2004, 2006, and 2010, are especially revered for their exceptional quality and aging potential.
