- Score: 92 Vintage 2016 Wine EnthusiastRose-petal, red-skinned berry and new leather aromas lead the nose. The savory palate offers crushed raspberry, cinnamon and white pepper alongside taut but fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2024–2032. Full Review
- Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Wine AdvocateThe Garesio 2015 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba is a spicy and robust interpretation of Nebbiolo that delivers a very developed savory side. There is dark primary fruit at the core of the wine, but more attention is drawn to aromas of spice, tobacco and campfire embers. The heat of the vintage may have played a small role in drying out some of the wine's fruity freshness. You also get the power and concentration that are characteristics of this comune within the Barolo appellation. I would suggest a near or medium-term drinking window. Full Review
- Score: 87 Vintage 2014 Wine Spectator“Bright cherry, raspberry, mint and iron flavors define this tightly wound red. A bit lean now, but may flesh out with some time. Offers a crisp, tannic finish. Best from 2022 through 2033. 11,000 cases made, 100 cases imported.” Shelf Talker Full Review
