Wine Spectator: 95 Points

A powerful style this Barolo evokes cherry incense licorice tar and tree bark aromas and flavors with a solid structure behind it. The firm tannins dominate the finish for now yet this shows fine potential and length. Best from 2023 through 2045.

Wine Enthusiast: 93 Points

Truffle red-berry and camphor aromas mingle with new leather and rose on this full-bodied red. The tight elegantly structured palate features sour cherry licorice and tobacco framed in firm close-grained tannins. Drink 2024?2031.

Vinous: 90+ Points

Chionetti's 2016 Barolo Bussia Vigna Pianpolvere is laced with dark macerated cherry kirsch mint orange peel spice and licorice. Rich and ample on the palate the 2016 offers fine depth and enough freshness to drink well for a number of years. There is an element of exoticism that is quite appealing but the tannins are also large-grained and give the wine a distinctly rustic character. (Drink between 2022-2036)
