    “Drawing upon fruit from one of the most interesting and consistent subzones in the appellation, the Schiavenza 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba puts a lot of intensity and beauty right up there for you to admire. The bouquet shows a glossy, polished quality with shiny cherry and plum. That smoothness applies to the palate, most specifically to the tannins that leave some astringency at this young stage but are otherwise integrated. The wine's complexity is enhanced by spice, rusted iron, blood orange, balsam herb and hints of truffle essence. Some 11,800 bottles were made. Schiavenza offers us terrific value in this classic vintage.” – Monica Larner,

    “Very attractive, ripe aromas of strawberries and cherries follow through to a full body with a big, rich mouthful of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. Needs a year or two to soften more, but already very open.” – James Suckling

    “The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba is a punchy, fruity wine that will drink well right out of the gate. A burst of dark red cherry and plum fruit gives the 2016 a good deal of immediacy. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s natural power. The Comune is a blend of fruit from Meriame and Cerrati. It is one of my favorite wines in the range.” – Antonio Galloni
