Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 97
"The 2016 Barolo Acclivi is a deep, plush and hauntingly beautiful wine with tremendous power, dazzling intensity and remarkable richness. An ample, expansive and broad wine of striking inner perfume and sweetness, the 2016 is flat-out stunning. Crushed raspberry, mint, spice and blood orange infuse the 2016 with incredible depth and complexity before it finishes with mind-blowing intensity. All I can say is: Wow!" -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 96
"Opening to rich darkness and intensity, the 2016 Barolo Acclivi shows vibrant energy. This wine represents a blend of fruit from across various vineyard sites, including old vines in Monvigliero, Neirane and Rocche dell’Olmo. The wine shows dark fruit, smoked bacon, the same pepper spices we got with the Pelaverga and crushed flowers. The wine shows stems and bramble, although they are not green or astringent. A better descriptor would be spice, cinnamon and unripe cherry."

Decanter

D 96
"Fabio Alessandria describes Acclivi as the old concept of Barolo Riserva: a selection and blend which best represents the vintage. With varying proportions of the Monvigliero, Rocche dell'Olmo and Neirane crus, it is always made exclusively from Verduno fruit. Initially closed, the 2016 eventually reveals a captivating balsamic personality with winter mint and sage joining Verduno’s telltale spice and wildflowers. Despite compact fruit and tactile, clayey tannins, this remains fluid and tangy with a pomegranate lift. There's plenty of stuffing and power to carry it through a couple of decades."

Wine Spectator

WS 96
"This red is round and cherry-flavored, with lovely clarity and definition. Strawberry, earth and tobacco notes emerge, as do the dusty tannins that are more lacy than dense, extending on the finish."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 97
"Enticingly fragrant, this radiant red opens with aromas of wild red berry, botanical herb, rose and smoky flint. Vibrant and savory, the chiseled palate delivers strawberry compote, pomegranate, thyme and licorice before an energizing orange-zest close. Taut fine-grained tannins and racy acidity lend balance and age-worthy structure."
