95 points Wine & Spirits: "The Allesandria family's wine from Monforte is red-fruited and lively, its crunchy cherry and berry flavors gaining verve and brightness as the wine sits in the glass. The tannins are like cool iron, gripping the red fruit tones as they pick up notes of soft herbs and white licorice on the long finish. (2022)"

94 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "[$95 list] With fruit from Monforte d'Alba, the 2018 Barolo Gramolere is linear and tight with etched aromas of crisp forest berry, iron ore, blood orange, blue violet and crushed stone. The wine is bright and expressive with time in the glass, but it takes a while to open fully. The tannins are firm but integrated. It should be interesting to retaste this Barolo after the 10-year mark. Drink: 2024-2040. (Aug 2022)"

94 points Aldo Fiordelli (Decanter): "A wine fermented in stainless steel for 25 to 30 days then aged in large French oak vessels for 36 months. Bright garnet in the glass, its restrained rhubarb root, cinnamon candy and red currant aromas and flavours shine. The crunchy palate is full bodied with precise, polished tannins, dusty yet ripe, balanced by crisp acidity and displaying persistency and great quality to the finish, which is lengthened by a bitter note. (Drink between 2022-2035. (Jan 2022)"

92-94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Barolo Gramolere is the most engaging of the 2018 Barolos here. It shows a level of translucence that is missing from the other wines, most likely because of recent racking. Dark spice, menthol, plum and gravel lend quite a bit of nuance to this ample, expansive Barolo. The 2018 is beautifully done and also quite promising, Drink: 2024-2043. (Feb 2022)"

92 points Kerin O'Keefe (Wine Enthusiast): "Rose, woodland berry, pine forest and culinary spice are just some of the aromas you'll find on this fragrant, fantastic red. Smooth, full-bodied and polished, the savory palate delivers ripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and white pepper alongside velvety tannins. Fresh acidity keeps bright. Drink 2026–2033. Alcohol 14.5%. (Sep 2022)"
