94 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "[$62 list] The Parusso 2016 Barolo offers that distinctive Parusso nose that I have come to understand over the years I have been tasting these wines. There is a touch of ripe fruit, dried grape skins and stems that pop out over rich black fruit, tar and black spice. There's a sultry and smoky aspect to the wine with extra concentration and tannic astringency on the finish. This vintage is even more structured, suggesting a longer cellar aging time. If you are invested in the Parusso philosophy, this is a good place to start. Drink: 2024-2040. (Jul 2020)"

94 points James Suckling: "A very ripe and decadent red with so much depth and richness. Full-bodied, deep and rich. A big combination of ripe fruit and tannins. Give this a few years to come together. Better after 2022. (8/5/20)"

92+ points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "[$62 list] The 2016 Barolo is a terrific example of the year. Unusually dark and somber, the 2016 packs a real punch. Black cherry, plum, espresso, licorice, spice and menthol add to the wine's richness and overall intensity. Far from an easygoing straight Barolo, Parusso's 2016 is a very serious wine; I wouldn't dream of touching a bottle anytime soon. Vineyard sources are Mariondino, Mosconi and Bussia - all top sites that are also bottled separately here. Drink: 2024-2031. (Feb 2020)"
