    “Camphor, steeped cherry, pipe tobacco and new leather aromas come together in the glass along with a hint of underbrush. On the brawny palate, close-grained tannins accompany dried black cherry, licorice and cinnamon before leaving a drying finish. It closes on an almond note. Drink 2024–2031” – Kerin O’Keefe

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 95 points

    “The Schiavenza 2016 Barolo Prapò impresses just as much as the Cerretta. Both wines show amazing clarity and purity, and this one from the lowest-altitude vineyard (at 300 meters above sea level with compact marl soils) is distinguished by its vibrant quality of fruit. There is a lot of zesty energy locked within this release of just 2,973 bottles, and as the wine pours forth, it builds intensity with each additional sip. Both crus reveal a solid build with tight tannins to carry them forward in time as they complete their cellar aging. Patience is required.” – Monica Larner

    “A dense, very tight Barolo with crushed ripe strawberries, flowers and fresh mushrooms. It’s full-bodied, but very compact. Linear, tight tannins. Drink in 2023 and onwards.” – James Suckling
