SKU #1423543 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Raspberries with strawberries and hints of dried rose petals and cedar. Full bodied, this builds on the palate with superb tannin tension and focus. Goes on for minutes. Greatness. Drink in 2023. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark La Morra is generally known for slightly more accessible expressions, and this is the case with the beautifully velvety and rich 2015 Barolo Gattera that shows so well straight out of the gate. Fruit for this wine is sourced from two positions on either side of the landmark cedar of Lebanon tree that grows on the Cordero di Montezemolo property and can be seen far and wide across the appellation. The best clusters are selected for this wine. This Barolo shows richness and power with plenty of dark fruit nuances. The wine goes into botte for up to 20 months and then goes into bottle. In fact, this estate makes a point to age longer in glass so that the wines are more ready when they hit the market. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Barolo Gattera is ample and generous on the palate, with notable mid-palate volume and plenty of raciness. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and spice fill out the wine's frame nicely. Here, too, the wine needs time for the tannins to soften. As is typically the case, the Gattera is the creamiest of the estate's Barolos. Even so, it has more than enough structure to develop well for a number of years. The 2015 is especially fine. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2019)
