Barolo GG 2010 93 Pts. Wine Spectator Insider

Barolo GG 2009 90 Pts. and Best Buy Wine & Spirits

“This is a foursquare Barolo holding to a modern line, scents of tar and anise lasting along with oak toast and smoke, the tannins as rich and smooth as molten chocolate. For a steakhouse.” 12/31/2014

Barolo GG 2009 91 Pts. Robert Parker

“The 2009 Barolo shows spicy richness balanced by dark fruit and plum. The use of oak has been carefully executed and although you certainly feel its impact in both the intensity of bouquet and the softness of the mouthfeel, those fine characteristics of the Nebbiolo grape are still allowed to shine through  Delicate tones of white pepper, licorice and root beer lift beautifully from the glass. Anticipated maturity 2015-2025.” 6/27/2015

Barolo GG 2008 90 Pts. Wine Spectator

“An elegant style, boasting flavors of cherry, balsamic and tobacco. Firm and tightly knit, with spicy and woody notes on the lingering finish. Best from 2015 through 2028.”  B.S. 3/1/2013

Barolo GG 2008 91 Pts. James Suckling

Barolo GG 2007 92 Pts. James Suckling

“Dried flowers with lots of roses and spices with dark fruits too. Full body, with soft and round tannins. Lots of cocoa and fruit. Long finish. Hard not to drink now! Voluptuous.” 5/9/2011

Barolo GG 2007 88 Pts. Robert Parker

“Gagliardo’s 2007 Barolo shows good up front richness in its fruit, but comes across as surprisingly forward, even within the context of the vintage. Sweet dried herbs, tobacco, incense and worn-in leather are some of the notes that add nuance on the finish. This is a feminine style meant for near-term drinking, but some of the more advance notes add welcome complexity for a wine meant to be enjoyed young.Anticipated maturity 2011-2015.” 10/31/2011

Barolo GG 2006 91 Pts. Wine Spectator

“This trends toward chewy in texture, with cherry, mint, tobacco and spice flavors. Slightly dry now, courtesy of the dense tannins, but there’s plenty of sweet fruit to offset them. Best from 2015 through 2032.”  B.S. 11/30/2011

Barolo GG 2006 91 Pts. Robert Parker

“Gianni Gagliardo’s 2006 Barolo is a very pretty wine laced  with sweet spices, red berries, curshed flowers and French oak. Medium in body, the wine reveals gorgeous, silky tannins and fabulous overall balance. Hints of smoke and tar add a touch of darkness on the finish. If given some air, the 2006 Barolo is extremely tasty, even at this early stage in its life. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.” 12/31/2010

Barolo 'Preve'

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2012 93 pts. Wine Spectator

“A polished style, with cherry, plum, floral and spice flavors meshing with the smooth texture. The firm structure matches well and the finish is long and stony. Best from 2018 through 2033.” B.S. 7/27/2016

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2011 91 Pts. Wine & Spirits “Year’s Best Barolo and Barbaresco”

“Gagliardo’s 2011 Preve rested ten months in small barrels and 36 months in large casks, developing notes of dark chocolate, soy and cracked black peppercorn that weave through its blackberry and plum flavors While the fruit feels warm the wine’s brisk tannins bring the finish into focus and suggest that this wine will improve with a few years in the cellar.” 12/31/2015

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2011 92 Pts. Wine Spectator

“A mélange of cherry, plum, leather and sandalwood notes marks this chunky, chewy red. Bright acidity and an innate sweetness lead to the long, licorice-and spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2032. 315 cases made.” B.S. 11/30/2015

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2011 93 Pts. James Suckling

“A big and juicy red with dried meat, ripe fruit and cloves on the nose and palate. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.” 9/23/2015

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2010 90 Pts. Wine & Spirits “Year’s Best Barolo and Barbaresco”

“In 2010, the grapes for Gagliardo’s Preve hung ten days longer than in the previous year, the slow, even ripening contributing to the wine’s vibrant acidity and fine tannic structure. The wine spent 18 months in barriques and 12 in large casks, gaining a chocolatey richness that cushions the grippy tannins. Cellar this for a few years to let the tannins and oak flavors meld.” 12/31/2015

Barolo  ‘Preve’ 2010 90 Pts. and Highly Recommended Decanter Panel Tasting

“Coffee and wood smoke aromas over deep black fruits and fennel seed. Dense and chewy palate with youthful red and dark cherry flavors complemented by mint, cocoa and pepper. Drink 2018-2030.” 4/30/2015

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2010 90 Pts. Vinous.com

“Gianni Gagliardo Barolo ‘Preve’ has come together quite nicely since I tasted it a few months ago. The tannins have begun to soften, allowing the dark fruit to come through with greater precision and nuance. Cloves, mocha, spices and black cherries wrap around the brooding, potent finish in the virile Barolo to drink over the next decade or so.” A.G. 1/1/2015

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2010 93 Pts. James Suckling

“This is a young Barolo with beautiful pure fruit of raspberries, ripe strawberries and roses. It’s full and very velvety with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Needs at least three to four years to soften. Better in 2018.” J.S. 4/1/2014

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2008 95 Pts. James Suckling

“This is a blend of two vineyards. Full body with superb fine tannins and a juicy and berry character. Wonderful.” J.S. 5/1/2014

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2007 93 Pts. Wine Spectator

“Delivers a big blast of macerated cherry, leather and sweet spice aromas and flavors, matched to the rich texture in this sumptuous red. Complex, picking up a flinty, minerally element as this relaxes on the long finish. Best from 2016 through 2035.”  B.S. 6/1/2013

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2007 92 Pts. James Suckling 5/9/2011

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2006 94 Pts. James Suckling

“Extremely pretty aromas of tangerine, cherry, plum and berry follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Really excellent riserva. Drink or hold.” 9/23/2015

Barolo ‘Preve’ 2004 92 Pts. Wine Enthusiast

“Here’s a Barolo that lives up to its “riserva” status thanks to aged aromas of old spice, leather, black mineral, root beer, tar and menthol-like intensity. There are some earthy, dusty tones on the finish and the wine imparts firm, ripe tannin in the mouth.  Riserva’s are usually aged one more year than base Barolos.” M.L. 12/31/2010

Barolo 'Preve' Riserva

Barolo ‘Preve’ Riserva 2009 94 Pts. James Suckling

“Extremely pretty aromas of tangerine, cherry, plum and berry follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Really excellent riserva. Drink or hold.” 9/23/2015

Barolo ‘Preve’ Riserva 2007 92 Pts. Robert Parker

“The 2007 Barolo Preve Riserva is an emboldened, oak-driven expression with decisive tones of sticky spice, new leather and tar.  The wine reaches exceptionally high levels of aromatic intensity that almost go over the top healthy fruit in 2007, plus the generous use of French oak, has crafted a super-sized Barolo that can be enjoyed within the next few years, or set aside. Anticipated maturity: 2014- 2023.” 6/27/2013

Barolo 'Lazzarito Preve'

Barolo ‘Lazzarito Preve’ 2013 93 Pts. Wine Spectator

“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.” B.S. 12/31/2017

Barolo ‘Lazzarito Preve’ 2013 96 Pts. James Suckling

“Aromas of licorice, rose petals and barries. Fully 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.” 7/11/2017

Barolo 'Serre'

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2012 94 Pts. James Suckling

“An opulent red with plum and cherry aromas plus hints of roses. Full body, round and silky tannins and a fresh and bright finish. So lively and flavorful. Harmonious and beautiful. Drink now.” 8/24/2016

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2012 93 Pts. Wine Spectator

Leads off with cherry, raspberry, mint and tobacco notes, picking up a mineral streak as this winds down on the vibrant finish. Shows fine balance and structure. Best from 2018 through 2032. 320 cases made.” B.S. 10/15/2016

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2011 93 Pts. James Suckling

“A wine with dried berry, chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Big and juicy wine. Drink or hold.” 9/23/2015

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2011 92 Pts. Wine Spectator

“A tough, tannic shell surrounds the core of cherry and leather notes in this coiled red. Fresh and long on the finish, but needs time or grilled meat in the early stages. Best from 2019 through 2032.” B.S. 12/31/2015

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2010 95 Pts. James Suckling

“A young Barolo with lots of dried berry character and intense floral and cedar undertones. White truffles too.  Full body, with a solid core of fruit and ultra fine tannins. Last for minutes. Beautiful mouth feel. Better in 2017.” J.S. 4/1/2014

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2010 91 Pts. Wine Spectator

“Sweet cherry and plum are augmented by licorice in this open knit red. The tannis are ripe and almost velvety as this cruises to a long finish. Not built for the long haul, but enticing nonetheless. Best from 2017 through 2030.” B.S. 12/31/2014

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2010 Due (2) Bicchieri Gambero Rosso 4/1/2015

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2009 91 Pts. Robert Parker

“The 2009 Barolo Serre is a darkly concentrated “modern” rendition of Barolo that shows deep richness and plush texture in the mouth. The inside firmness of the wine and its elegant tannic structure do a great job of supporting black fruit, spice, leather and moist pipe tobacco. The wine shows a nice evolution in the glass and can be enjoyed in the near-term. Anticipated maturity: 2015- 2022.” 6/27/2015

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2009 Due (2) Bicchieri Gambero Rosso 4/1/2014

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2008 90 Pts. Wine Spectator

“Menthol and eucalyptus aromas and cherry and balsamic flavors are the main themes in this wild red. There’s sweet fruit at the core and this is balanced with fine intensity. Best from 2014 through 2024.”  B.S. 3/1/2013

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2007 91 Pts. James Suckling

“Lots of strawberry, dried mushrooms and flowers on the nose. Full and fruity, with polished tannins and a light jam aftertaste. Delicious already.” 5/9/2011

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2007 92 Pts. James Suckling

“Aromas of plums, meat and spices follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a long chewy finish. Cocoa and hazelnut undertones. Give it three to four years to soften but very pretty already.” 7/19/2012

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2007 93 Pts. Wine Enthusiast

“Barolo Serre is made with fruit sources from various vineyard sites. This gorgeous wine opens with a modern touch of sweet spice and toasted nut lavished over ethereal aromas of cherry liqueur and dark licorice. Drink in 5-10 years.”  M.L. 9/30/2011

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2007 90 Pts. Robert Parker

“The 2007 Barolo Serre is richer than the G.G. 2007, deeper and more powerful than the regular bottling. The Serre impresses for its authoritative, masculine personality and the sheet depth of its fruit. This isn’t the most subtle wine of the vintage, but it makes up for that with its terrific textural richness and engaging personality. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.” 10/31/2011

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2007 93 Pts. Wine Enthusiast

“Gianni Gagliardo’s Barolo Serre is an impressively delicate wine with layers of wild berry, red rose, pressed violets, smoke and mineral. The mouthfeel is fresh, tannic, clean and very long lasting. This classic expression of Nebbiolo shows the best qualities of this noble Italian variety.”  M.L. 12/31/2010

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2006 91 Pts. James Suckling

“Really enjoy the ripe fruit in this soft and velvety Barolo, with a full body, chewy tannins and a lightly earthy finish.” 4/25/2011

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2006 4 Stars Decanter

“Very typical and beguiling aromas of truffle, spice, violets, cinnamon, red fruit and strawberry. Youthful palate of grippy tannins, high acidity, prevalent oak and integrated black fruit flavors. Excellent aging potential.” 8/31/2011

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2006 92 Pts. Wine Spectator

“A clean, well-defined red, displaying cherry, strawberry and floral notes. Eucalyptus and tobacco accents add interest, and this is firm and tight on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2028.” B.S. 11/30/2011

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2006 91 Pts. Robert Parker

“The 2006 Barolo Serre is a touch deeper and richer than the straight Barolo, but the differences are rather small. The Serre possesses more vibrancy in its fruit, along with firmer tannins that will require a bit more patience. This too is a sleek, elegant Barolo with terrific persistence and commendable overall balance. Anticipated maturity 2012 – 2022.”  12/31/2010

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2005 91 Pts. & Editors Choice Wine Enthusiast

“Gianni Gagliardo is producing excellent results from the estate’s newly refurbished winery. This expression from the Serre cru shows elegance and harmony, especially in how its aromas of black fruit, tar, licorice and white truffle come together. Drying tannins and firm structure promise long aging”  M.L.  12/31/2010

Barolo ‘Serre’ 2005 95 Pts. James Suckling

Barolo 'Castelletto'

Barolo ‘Castelletto’ 2013 93 Pts. Wine Spectator

“Tightly wound, featuring a ball of cherry, menthol, leather, licorice and tar flavors. There is an inherent sweetness to the ripe fruit, keeping this red balanced and long. Best from 2020 through 2038.” B.S. 12/31/2017

Barolo ‘Castelletto’ 2013 93 Pts. James Suckling

“Love the perfume and berry character to this one. Lovely strawberry and cherry undertones.  Spices, too. Full to medium body, round and velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish.” 1/31/2017

Barolo ‘Castelletto’ 2013 91 Pts. Vinous

“The 2013 Barolo Castelletto offers good punch and intensity. Like the straight Barolo, the Castelletto is done in a forward style that offers quite a bit of near and medium term appeal. Bright red fruit and floral notes take center stage, while the incisive tannins that are typical of this site are very much in the background.” A.G. 10/31/2017

Barolo 'Cannubi'

Barolo ‘Cannubi’ 2008 95 Pts. James Suckling

“Fabulous aromas to this of freshly cut flowers and sliced strawberries. Full-bodied, with a bright and intense palate of fruit and citrus acidity. Chewy yet polished tannins. Very long and energetic. Try in 2015.” 7/19/2012

Barolo ‘Cannubi’ 2007 94 Pts. and Cellar Selection Wine Enthusiast

“Gianni Gagliardo is part of an elite group of vintners that represents a new and exciting generation in Barolo. This Nebbiolo from the Cannubi cru is a top-shelf wine, with elegant and austere tones of berry fruit, menthol, cola, balsam, teriyaki sauce and tar.  Hold for 10 years of more.” M.L 9/30/2011

Barolo ‘Cannubi’ 2006 3 Stars Decanter

“Rose, violet, spice, red berry and cheese nose. Ripe, rich, concentrated fruit showing good integration and a few layers. Nice classic tannin structure” 8/31/2011

Barolo ‘Cannubi’ 2006 93 Pts. Wine Spectator ‘Special Issue’

“This red starts out with floral tones, turning more to pure cherry, then bramble and spice as the layers unfold. Shows flesh and firm tannins, in a slimmed-down way, ending with a licorice tinge. Best from 2014 through 2032.” 11/30/2011

Barolo ‘Cannubi’ 2006 94 Pts. and  Cellar Selection Wine Enthusiast

“A Barolo superstar on the rise-keep a close watch on the wines of Gianni Gagliardo and family. This expression from the prized Cannubi cru offers impressive black fruit, cola, root beer, cured beef, cedar and white truffle. The wine is ethereal and elegant but the tannic touch is firm enough to promise a long cellar future ahead.” M.L. 12/31/2012

Barbera d'Alba 'Madama'

Barbera d’Alba ‘Madama’ 2011 91 Pts. James Suckling

Dolcetto d'Alba 'Paulin'

Dolcetto d’Alba ‘Paulin’ 2012 89 Pts. Wine Spectator

Nebbiolo d'Alba 'San Ponzio'

Nebbiolo d’Alba ‘San Ponzio’ 2012 90 Pts. James Suckling

“All the ripe-plum and walnut character is here on the nose. Full body, velvety tannins and a chewy finish. A little hollow in the middle palate but still delivers quality. Enjoy now.” 10/29/2015
