Wine Advocate, 95+ Points 

"Ceretto offers a tour de force in the 2016 vintage with four excellent single-vineyard expressions from Bricco Rocche, Bussia, Brunate and Prapò. If you can't choose between those wines, you always have this excellent fallback. The classic 2016 Barolo offers dark intensity with great aromatic detailing. Fruit and some floral notes are followed by ferrous notes and a good amount of powdered licorice. The aromas are delicate and fragile; however, the wine deftly hides its power within the soft folds of its slender, mid-weight mouthfeel. This is a perfect go-to Barolo when you can't choose from all the excellent options in this benchmark 2016 vintage.

James Suckling, 94 Points 

"A red with poise and focus, offering plums and strawberries, as well as cedar and light coffee undertones. It’s medium-to full-bodied with lots of tannins, yet nicely masked with ripe fruit. It’s in balance and focused. Better after 2022." 

Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points 

"Aromas of dark-skinned berry, toasted nut and a whiff of coffee bean form the nose. On the full-bodied palate, notes of espresso and licorice accent a black-cherry core while close-grained tannins lend firm support and generate a firm, drying close." 

Wine Spectator, 92 Points 

"Perfumed, exhibiting macerated cherry, plum, tar and camphor aromas. It picks up iron and tobacco notes as it builds to the lingering finish. The tannins also build, yet remain fine-grained and balanced. Best from 2022 through 2040."
