2016 Schiavenza "Prapò" Barolo

SKU #1512977 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense, very tight Barolo with crushed ripe strawberries, flowers and fresh mushrooms. It’s full-bodied, but very compact. Linear, tight tannins. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (BS) Inner quote mark (4/2021)
