Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Vinous:
"Bright and floral, with lovely aromatic top notes that give the wine energy, the 2016 Barolo is a terrific introduction to the Altare Barolos. Lavender, rose petal, mint, spice and new leather are some of the many notes that grace this silky, mid-weight Barolo." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2020)
