93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Lovely scents of rose, violet, perfumed berry, cake spice and a whisper of menthol lead the way on this fragrant red. Savory and precise, the linear luminous palate doles out crushed raspberry, juicy Marasca cherry, licorice and clove. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity and polished tannins. Drink 2020–2028." -KO, 9/1/17

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Aromatic and silky, this red delivers macerated cherry, raspberry, rose petal and mineral flavors. Balanced and soft, with gentle tannins and fine length. Best from 2020 through 2032. 6,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported." -BS, 11/30/18

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"This is Michele Chiarlo's entry-level Barolo that sees fruit sourced from the Cerequio cru. The wine is named after the calcareous marl clay soils of sedimentary marine origin that characterize this site. The soils are from the Tortonian period (nine million years ago). The 2013 Barolo Tortoniano reveals a dry and mineral-rich bouquet. Those aromas are enhanced by bright tones of dried raspberry and cherry." -ML, 6/29/18

90 Points - Vinous
"Chiarlo's 2013 Barolo is bold and powerful in the glass. Super-ripe dark cherry, smoke, sweet spice, licorice and tobacco give the wine much of its up-front appeal. Although not especially complex, the 2013 will drink well right out of the gate, which makes it an excellent choice for readers who can't cellar wines for the long term. This is an especially succulent, plush style for the year." -AG, Oct/2017
