“A combination of cherry, spice, toast and menthol flavors is the hallmark of this fresh red. Opens with air, yet the oak notes linger, with ample spice and gripping tannins lining the finish. Best from 2020 through 2033. 200 cases made.”–BS
Wine & Spirits
"Notes of sweet spice, dark chocolate and mint weave through this wine’s ripe black-cherry and plum flavors. It feels taut and vibrant, with firm tannins that lend a cool, metallic structure to the lush fruit. Give those tannins a few years to soften before pouring the wine with a seared ribeye."
"Aromas of licorice, rose petals and berries. Full body, chewy tannins and lots of fruit. It's tight and polished, and there's so much going on. Very cool. Best ever from this vineyard. Try in 2022."
"The 2013 Barolo Lazzarito Preve is the fullest and most ample of these 2013 Barolos from Gagliardo. Then again, that is Serralunga. Black cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, cloves and leather fill out the wine's broad-shouldered frame effortlessly. This is another attractive Barolo from Gagliardo."
