95 points James Suckling: "A very pretty, floral Barolo with rose petals, cedar and sandalwood, as well as strawberries and cherries. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, very fine and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften a little. Try after 2022. (10/6/20)"
95 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrant blue flower and perfumed berry aromas mingle with whiffs of dark culinary spice and forest floor. Tightly knit and loaded with finesse, the full-bodied palate features juicy cherry, strawberry compote, star anise and a hint of white pepper alongside taut, polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink 2022–2030. Alcohol 14.5%. (Oct 2020)"
93 points Wine Spectator: "This shows some heft, the fleshy texture enveloping cherry, raspberry, floral and spice flavors. Menthol and toasty oak notes add interest, while the long finish is defined by vibrant acidity. Fine harmony and expression. Best from 2022 through 2038. (11/30/20)"
93 points Wine & Spirits: "The Scavino family draws fruit for this wine from seven of their cru vineyards scattered across the communes of Barolo, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba. In 2016, it came together in a beautifully balanced Barolo, with bright red-berry tones and notes of licorice and lavender in a supple mid-weight frame. Immensely appealing in its youth, this should also age well. (Dec 2020)"
