- Score: 96 Vintage 2016 Wine EnthusiastIris, woodland-berry and pine forest aromas shape the nose. On the focused, vibrant palate, mint and star anise notes accent a core juicy Marasca cherry. Taut polished tannis and bright acidity provide balance and a firm lithe structure. Shelf Talker Full Review
- Score: 91 Vintage 2016 Vinous MediaThe 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba shows the added weight and tannic heft of Serralunga (vis-à-vis the straight Barolo), but it too is done in a mid-weight style that requires minimal cellaring. Iron, smoke, sage, mint and a host of feral nuances are laced into a core of dark fruit. There is plenty of character here, that much is evident. The Comune is a blend of six parcels in town.
