Wine Advocate (93)- "With a lion on its front label to represent Barolo, the "King of Wines," the La Spinetta 2017 Barolo Garretti is a wine of depth, dark fruit and concentration. This vintage delivers power and lots of momentum that you feel in the weight of the fruit, the aromatic intensity and the structure. The wine's alcohol measures 14.5%, and that, too, contributes to the overall brawn and muscle. This production appears very youthful and still nervous, so put it aside in your cellar for best results."
James Suckling (94)- "Lots of dried roses with stems to the strawberry and cherry character. It’s full-bodied and chewy with lots of fruit and wood tannins that pucker your mouth now. But it should come around nicely with bottle age."
Vinous Media (90)- "The 2017 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is gracious and nicely lifted right out of the gate. Sweet floral notes and red berry fruit give the 2017 tons of immediacy. This mid-weight, perfumed Barolo from La Spinetta will drink well right out of the gate. I would prefer to drink it over the next decade or so."
