- Score: 92 Vintage 2016 James Suckling A soft and round red with plum and berry character, as well as chocolate and hazelnut. It’s full and layered with beautiful fruit and a long, juicy finish. Drink or hold. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 92 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media Fregonese's 2016 Barolo Prapò is a powerful, sinewy wine. Crushed red fruit, mint, chalk, white pepper, iron and sage give the 2016 its distinctly wild feral personality. The potent Serralunga tannins need time to soften, that is clear, but I don't think that will be an issue given how well the wine shows with a few hours of air. This is very nicely done.

- Score: 93 Vintage 2014 Wine Spectator Though tightly wound, this Barolo exhibits ample sweet cherry, menthol, iron and leafy tobacco aromas and flavors. Elegant and balanced, with the fruit remaining front and center as this lingers on the savory aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2035. 308 cases made, 100 cases imported. –BS Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 91 Vintage 2014 Wine Advocate Davide Fregonese's 2014 Barolo Prapò opens to a softly delicate and smoky bouquet. It shows an embroidery of aromas that span from dried berry and cassis to moist earth and button mushroom. This is a producer who had not previously showed on my radar, and this wine makes a very good first impression. This vintage delivers a streamlined mouthfeel and mild astringency that comes with young Nebbiolo. Give it another few years to unwind in the bottle. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
