Prapo is like super Cerretto, as if you look at a map you'll see that the Cru is carved out of Cerretto, taking its most perfect southern exposure. Considered Shiavenza's  top wine.

Monica Larner: "The Schiavenza 2016 Barolo Prapò impresses just as much as the Cerretta. Both wines show amazing clarity and purity, and this one from the lowest-altitude vineyard (at 300 meters above sea level with compact marl soils) is distinguished by its vibrant quality of fruit. There is a lot of zesty energy locked within this release of just 2,973 bottles, and as the wine pours forth, it builds intensity with each additional sip. Both crus reveal a solid build with tight tannins to carry them forward in time as they complete their cellar aging. Patience is required. 95"

"The 2016 Barolo Prapò is a dark, deep wine. Today, the Prapò is a bit monolithic. Hopefully time in bottle will help smooth out some of the tannins. Dark cherry, dark plum, iron, smoke, gravel, white pepper and chalk are enshrouded in a wall of Serralunga tannins in this brooding, inward Barolo from Schiavenza." -Antonio Galloni

"A mix of macerated black cherry, plum, menthol, tar, leather and tobacco marks this solid red. Dense, dusty tannins are tightly wound, while the ripe fruit persists on the lingering aftertaste." -Bruce Sanderson
