96 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "Here's a blast from the past. This wine has not been produced since the 2004 vintage, so it's a real pleasure to rediscover it today. The Bovio 2016 Barolo Parussi draws its fruit from Castiglione Falletto in a site with southern exposures positioned 230 meters above sea level. This is a true treasure, a wine with beautiful balance and intensity. The aromas are precise and focused with wild berry, dried rose, crushed limestone and candied fruit. In the mouth, the wine is velvety and structured, with fine textural impact. A mere 1,900 bottles were released. Bovio's Barolo Parussi, the comeback kid, is another home run from Castiglione Falletto in the classic 2016 vintage. Drink: 2024-2045. (Jul 2020)"
95 points James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of dried flowers and fresh strawberries with some citrus. Lavender and red roses, too. Full-bodied with really ripe, polished tannins and gorgeous fruit. It is wonderful to taste (even drink) now, but give it time to show what it has. Better after 2022. (8/4/20)"
