A pretty Barolo that shows plenty of sour cherries, tea leaves, tobacco and cedar. The palate is quite edgy with bright acidity, but the savory tannins do well to coat the mouth. This finishes medium-long and delicious.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Barolo Prapò speaks in whispers, not in a loud voice. This Nebbiolo offers delicate tones of rose hip, forest berry, toast, scorched earth and truffle. The mouthfeel is subdued in terms of flavor intensity but not in terms of texture. In fact, that thin and compact feeling is actually surprisingly firm, silky and long. Some 6,500 bottles were released.

Though slim, this has everything in the right proportions: cherry and strawberry fruit, iron, tobacco, spice and tar flavors, refined tannins and an elegant frame. Harmonious finish.
