Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95+ points
"The 2015 Barolo Gramolere (with fruit from Monforte d'Alba) opens to a medium-dark ruby color. When you put the wine to your lips, you immediately feel the power, structure and inner fiber of Nebbiolo as interpreted in this two-hectare parcel with its 30-year-old vines. In fact, this wine is defined by that immediate firmness. The aromas, however, are softer and more yielding with forest fruit, wild berry, crushed slate and blue flower. I would suggest putting this wine aside for five more years at least."

"Beautifully fresh and succulent style here. The nose is sweetly fragrant, spicy and brimming with ripe red berries and the palate has measured, succulent and juicy appeal. Rolls smoothly into the finish. Try from 2022."

Wine Enthusiast, 93 points
"Wild berries, purple flowers, dark spices and a whiff of camphor take shape in the glass. On the taut palate, tightly wound, fine-grained tannins support dried cherry, blood orange, licorice and tobacco. It's still youthfully austere, so give it a few more years to unwind and fully develop."

Vinous, 92 points
"The 2015 Barolo Gramolere is powerful and dense in the glass, with a good bit of richness but also less of the tension that is such a signature for wines from this site in Monforte. Cedar, sweet tobacco, pine, mint, dried cherry, licorice and dried flowers develop with air, adding attractive layers of complexity. Overall, the 2015 looks like it will drink well relatively early."

A wine to drink young and to put away for as long as you want, most likely. For us, it hits all the sweet spots we crave in northern Italian Nebbiolo --- tension, balance, electric energy and powerful flavors of tea, dried roses, cherry, mint and SO. MUCH. MORE.

ASTOUNDING PRICE. Will go fast...first come, first served!
