- Score: 93 Vintage 2016 Wine Spectator A dense, tightly wound style, this delivers a mix of savory and fruit flavors, with eucalyptus, juniper, cherry and strawberry framed by iron and tobacco. Persistent and tips toward the tannins now, yet this should come around in time. Best from 2024 through 2042. 600 cases made, 60 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 92 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast Rose-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. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate The 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. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of violet, nutmeg and tobacco slowly take shape on this. The solid palate delivers sour cherry, clove and black pepper alongside taut but refined tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2021–2028. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
