Ratings & Reviews

96 Points – James Suckling:
“One of the richer, rounder and more mouth-filling Barolos, this expansive wine fills its nicely firm structure with intricate layers of red cherries, orange peel, raspberry and cedar. While full-bodied and broad in texture, it has the signature fine-grained tannins for improvement with time. Best from 2029 and beyond.” (Jan 2024)

94 Points – Vinous Media:
“The 2020 Barolo Castelletto Vigna Pressenda is a delicate, elegant wine. Crushed rose petal, orange peel, white pepper, mint and crushed rocks all grace this gorgeous, translucent Barolo. All the elements are so nicely balanced. There is a feeling of crystalline purity here that is simply beguiling. It is the most ethereal and perfumed of the Barolos here. The 2020 is all class.“ - Antonio Galloni (Jan 2024)

94 Points – Wine Advocate:
“The Conterno Fantino 2020 Barolo Castelletto Vigna Pressenda shows rich dark fruit, licorice, spa cedar and sweet oak spice. There is a certain fullness to the palate with a hint of vanilla extract, with sweet blueberry cream and cherry pie. The tannins carry a slightly toasted note, but they remain fine grained and nicely integrated overall. Production is 6,600 bottles.” - Monica Larner (Apr 2024)

94 Points – Jeb Dunnuck:
“The 2020 Barolo Vigna Pressenda is medium ruby in color and brings forward detailed and elegant notes of raspberries, leather, and fresh roses, as well as umami porcini tones. Approachable and refined, this medium-bodied Barolo is all about finesse. It has a wide drinking window ahead of it, and its fantastic stony texture and ultrafine tannins will allow it to cruise gracefully over the next 12-15 years.” (May 2024)
