Sara d'Amato (Wine Align) 94 points:

"A highly memorable Barolo accessible enough for immediate enjoyment with ripe tannins that are beginning to soften. Voluminous with a touch of cream balanced by a lightly chalky mouthfeel. Delicate fruit and wood spice add dimension to the sour cherry and plum fruit on the palate. Full-bodied and complex with warming character. Immensely satisfying with a long, elegant finish."

John Szabo (Wine Align) 93 points:

"Here's a beautifully perfumed Barolo from the excellent 2016 vintage, combining the beguiling red fruit of nebbiolo with its classic floral and spice dimension, all in large measure. The palate is broad and full, well-structured, deep and complex, with long, lingering finish. A genuine and satisfying mouthful of wine, drinking surprisingly well now,...or cellerable into the '30s without concern. Impressive Barolo."

A blend of three vineyard plots within the Barolo zone, Icardi have been making wines for over 100 years and exemplify traditional winemaking.
