Dark and brooding in the glass, the Prapò expresses all of the natural weight of this Serralunga cru, but with more overt fruit and a bit less tannic heft than is often the case. That should make the 2017 a real pleasure to drink, with just a handful of years in the cellar. Succulent black cherry, licorice, menthol, gravel and cured meats build into the heady finish. -- Antonio Galloni

Very fresh and perfumed with oranges, cherries, raspberries and flowers. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and a racy, fine-tannined finish. Linear and racy. Give it time to soften. Try after 2024.

The...   This is a bold and opulent wine that sources its fruit from Serralunga d'Alba. The Paolo Scavino 2017 Barolo Prapò delivers rich fruit weight, with plummy black fruit, blackcurrant, iron ore, spice and cured spice. The vines at this site were replanted in 2008 and the fruit shows depth and authenticity, thanks to their advancing age. You get lingering mineral tones of rust and iron that marry this wine to a sense of place. The finish is bold but moderate in length.- ML

Now in its third release, the 2017 bottling is rich and concentrated, the dark fruit flavors fully ripe and layered with notes of licorice and warm spice. Well-integrated and showing some power in its polished tannins, this wine will benefit from several years of cellaring. Skurnik Wines, NY

Wine Spectator, January 2021
There is a hint of oak spice in the aromas, but the flavors are all about black cherry and blackberry fruit, accented by iron and tobacco. Its tightly packed tannins are present yet refined, and this red finishes long...   There is a hint of oak spice in the aromas, but the flavors are all about black cherry and blackberry fruit, accented by iron and tobacco. Its tightly packed tannins are present yet refined, and this red finishes long. Best from 2024 through 2043. 358 cases made, 60 cases imported. — BS
