"These are some of the best - maybe the best - Barolos I have tasted from Davide Rosso. The 2016s have a level of transparency and finesse I don't recall seeing in the past. The 2016 Barolos spent about 25 days on the skins with pumpovers, with one delestage, and malolactic fermentation in either steel or cement. The Barolos were racked into cask the following spring after a natural decantation, where they spent three years in wood. The Serra and Cerretta are aged in French oak cask, while the Rionda is done entirely in Slavonian oak." - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

"Iris, woodland-berry and pine-forest aromas shape the nose. On the focused, vibrant palate, mint and star anise notes accent a core juicy Marasca cherry. Taut polished tannins and bright acidity provide balance and a firm lithe structure. Drink 2024–2031." 96 points - Kerin O’Keefe (Wine Enthusiast, Sept. 2020)

"Deep, rose-petal notes with licorice, red cherries, kirsch and plenty of spice, as well as a savory edge with cedar and new leather. The palate carries very concentrated red cherries and spiced blueberries with driving acidity drawing ripe, smooth tannins very deep. Impressive power and poise. Try from 2022." 94 points - James Suckling (30 Nov, 2020)
