Top-Rated Barolos

The Piedmont region in Italy produces some of the world's best wines, perhaps none as fine as the beloved red wines from Barolo. Primarily made from the iconic Nebbiolo grape, the region's unique soil and climate produces expressions of this grape which can't be replicated. Here are some top-rated examples of great Barolo wines.

Elio Grasso Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté

2017 / 750 ml.

Item #: 95077

JD9797 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 5/27/2021
The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate has a slightly darker profile of licorice, black cherry, and wood spice. The palate is generous and structured, with plum pit, mineral-rich earth, and dried orange blossom. These are wines with incredible aromatic complexity and depth. Drink 2025–2050. (Jeb Dunnuck)
VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2021
The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable.
RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Jun 2021
Soils in the Ginestra vineyard show more moisture-retaining clay in their composition, making them better positioned to handle hot and dry vintages such as this. The Elio Grasso 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté reveals soft concentration and extra richness; however, the aromatic nuances are well intact. I recall that the previous 2016 vintage took longer to come into focus, whereas this 2017 expression is open-knit and immediately accessible. The fruit is front and center, and the wine slides over the palate with a silky texture. Managing the tannins in 2017 was not easy, but this wine proves that lasting balance is not out of reach.

Oddero Barolo

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 97828

VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2022
The 2018 Barolo is terrific. In 2018, the Odderos were not completely convinced of the results across all their sites. Ultimately, they blended all of their vineyard designates into the straight Barolo, with the exception of the Brunate and a Riserva from Vigna Rionda. In the glass, their 2018 is captivating. Exotic aromatics, bright red berry fruit and vibrant acids give the 2018 its considerable allure. Vineyard sites are: Fiasco, Bricco Chiesa, Capalot, Bussia, Villero, Rocche di Castiglione and Monvigliero. Look for this to be one of the under the radar gems of the vintage. I loved it. In fact, the Oddero Barolo is one of the few 2018s readers should not miss. It is a very strong ‘buy’ in my book.

A juicy, medium-bodied Barolo with clean red-fruit and some dried-walnut character. The tannins are still a little firm, so give it another year in bottle. Try from 2023.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 2022
Perfumed and supple, offering cherry, plum, earth and tar flavors. Open and relaxed, with charm and fine length. Drink now through 2032. 3,333 cases made. (Bruce Sanderson)

Fabio Oberto Barolo

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 98809

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, January 3, 2022
Intense nose of fresh and dried red berries, together with dried leaves and dark, clove-like spice. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and a concentrated bead of bright fruit and minerals. The tannins pull hard on the finish for now, so wait for this one. It’s structured and layered and definitely built to last. Hold until 2024.
RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 17th Jun 2021
The Fabio Oberto 2016 Barolo showcases a shiny or glossy textural quality that is a common characteristic of Nebbiolo from this classic vintage. The wine imparts an especially smooth and silky entry to the palate. In the case of this Barolo, the aromas are a little mixed and varied with dried fruit, savory spice, musky earth, leather and a point of black truffle. There is a hint of plastic or animal that fades quickly as the wine takes in more air in the glass. (Monica Larner)

Bovio Barolo

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 99585

RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 11th Aug 2022
The Bovio 2018 Barolo (with fruit from La Morra and Castiglione Falletto) delivers a very bright and lifted bouquet with cassis, wild fruit and hints of dried apricot or apple skin. I love the intensity and inner drive of this classic Barolo. The wine offers good freshness and silky tannins over a mid-weight approach. This wine is also quite immediate and ready to drink in the near or medium term. (Monica Larner)
JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, October 2, 2022
Chunky, ripe berries on the nose and palate, colored by thick, spicy notes that combine with the lightly firm tannins to give a plump, velvety texture on the full-bodied palate. Ends with a chocolate-cherry, almost liqueur-like note. Good concentration for 2018. Works well. Fun to try now, but hold for a year for better integration.

Mauro Molino Barolo Gallinotto

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 99977

JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 5/4/2023
Mauro Molino bought this vineyard in the 1990s, but the first vintage was not produced from it until 2001. The first of the single vineyard wines, the 2019 Barolo Gallinotto is lifted with mineral, fresh mint, and tarragon and has a floral imprint of wet stone, red cherry, and cinnamon. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied but takes on crunchy fresh acidity, with fine though present tannins, and has a cooling effect throughout. The palate reveals notes of anise, mint, and pomegranate. Allow for another year in bottle and drink 2024–2040. (Audrey Frick)
SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2023
Harmonious, this red sports cherry and raspberry flavors at the core, accented by eucalyptus, tobacco and mineral. Reveals a lean frame infused with assertive, grainy tannins. This will need a few years to integrate. Best from 2026 through 2042. 900 cases made, 300 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2023
The 2019 Barolo Gallinotto is a very pretty wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. There’s plenty of immediacy, but not quite the depth or complexity of the very best wines in the range. Succulent red cherry fruit, cedar, pipe tobacco, menthol and dried flowers linger. (Antonio Galloni)

Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric dël Fiasc

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 99996

JD9898 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 5/4/2023
The 2019 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is the hallmark wine of the estate, and it shows. Taking on more concentration, it is pure and generous with kirsch, star anise, nutmeg, and menthol and moves impressively to the palate with ease and nobility. It offers fantastic depth while remaining true to the vintage and propels forward through an arch of acidity, while having grounded notes of Earl Grey tea, black cherry, and crushed stones as well as ripe tannins. Drink 2026–2046. (Audrey Frick)
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2023
A supple, graceful red announced by rose, cherry, licorice, iron and white pepper aromas and flavors. This is no pushover, however, with a layer of dense, pointed tannins that resonate on the long aftertaste. Shows excellent balance and complexity. Best from 2027 through 2046. 675 cases made, 203 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
