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."
Wine Advocate (94)- "From the Garretti cru in Grinzane Cavour, in the comune where La Spinetta has its ultra modern winery. The 2016 Barolo Vigneto Garretti offers a generous and accessible personality that makes this wine optimal for near or medium-term drinking. The bouquet is layered and rich with dark fruit, licorice, tar and toasted aniseed. The tannins are nicely managed in this vintage, showing both power and elegance."
Wine Spectator (92)- "A strapping Barolo, exhibiting black cherry, black currant, tar and iron flavors backed by beefy tannins. It settles in on the long finish, the ripe fruit mitigating the tannins in the end. Best from 2023 through 2038."
