The 2018 Barolo del Comune di La Morra is absolutely gorgeous. Bright and translucent yet with remarkable depth for the year, the 2018 is terrific. Proprietor Nicola Oberto decided not to bottle his flagship Barolo from Rocche dell'Annunziata and used the fruit to bolster his straight Barolo bottling, a decision that was spot on. Sweet red cherry, orange peel, cinnamon, tobacco and dried leaves are all very nicely lifted in this ethereal, nuanced Barolo. The 2018 is simply exquisite. Readers will have a hard time finding a better example of the year at this level. 92 points. Antonio Galloni.
