"The hot vegetative cycle of 2017 gave the Aleste Barolo a long, fruity and dense structure. There are the typical aromas of sweet red cherry and raspberry, with a touch of oak and complex balsamic notes. On the palate, the wine fills the mouth, full and rich, ample, heady at the front, then structured at the center and finish. The red fruit flavors are deep and rich, as is typical for the site in a warmer year, then followed by a well-structured mid palate with racy tannins that will need 4-6 years of bottle age to soften. The fruit impression is balanced by long and mineral finish with fine-grained tannins. Recommended drinking window: 2024 – 2044." - Winemaker Notes 
"The purity and brightness of nebbiolo is so impressive here. Strawberries and blue fruit abound. Full-bodied, yet tight and very polished with a long, persistent finish. Very transparent and appealing. Drink in 2025 and onwards." - 96 Points, James Suckling 

“The 2017 Barolo Aleste is a dark, ample wine. Dark cherry, plum, new leather, spice and licorice bring out darker tones of Nebbiolo. All the natural power of these parcels come through effortlessly. Best of all, the 2017 will drink well with minimal cellaring.” - 95 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
