Parker über: Barolo Prapo

-- Parker: The Ceretto 2016 Barolo Prapò draws its fruit from Serralunga d'Alba and is, as expected, the most powerful and structured of the various single-vineyard wines presented by this ambitious estate. The fruit veers toward darker nuances with plum, dark cherry and dried blackberry. The mouthfeel is rounder and fuller, fleshed out considerably in all the nooks and crannies, with the bigger impact of sheer Nebbiolo personality. This is your proverbial red-meat Barolo. This site is one of the last to ripen, awarding the grapes ample time to reach maturity at a slow and careful pace. 97/100


Galloni über: Barolo Prapo

-- Galloni: The 2016 Barolo Prapò is the most closed and inward of the wines in this range, as it so often is. Iron, savory herbs, menthol, licorice, lavender, macerated dark cherry, dried flowers and sinewy Serralunga tannins give the 2016 its distinctive personality. Aeration brings out that beguiling mix of floral, savory and earhty overtones that is such a signature of Prapò Barolos. The 2016 is an infant, but I doubt readers will be drinking this wine any time soon. 95/100


Suckling über: Barolo Prapo

-- Suckling: Really floral on the nose and palate with sweet rose petals, dried strawberries and light citrus, as well as white truffle. It’s full-bodied, yet fine and chewy. Intense finish. Better after 2023. 94/100


Decanter über: Barolo Prapo

-- Decanter: Along with Brunate, Prapò was the first Barolo parcel purchased by Bruno and Marcello Ceretto in the late 1960s. Taking time to unfold, the 2016 Prapò has a strikingly poignant nose revealing sous-bois, freshly turned soil, alpine herbs and wild dark forest berries. A stony element chimes in on the palate, and while this is undoubtedly sturdy in structure it remains agile with finely sculpted tannins. As with all of Ceretto’s cru bottlings, this sees six months in small used barrels of French oak before finishing ageing in larger Austrian oak casks. 94/100
