100% Nebbiolo. Liste essentially acquired a completion of macro and micro elements that give the future wine an unequalled complexity and longevity. Highly visible from the curves of the secondary road that rises from Barolo towards the old Castello Della Volta, the vineyards of this renowned cru cover around 6.75 hectares. 4 years in Slavonian oak casks with a further refining in bottle for 6 months.

96+ / 100

Mike Bennie

"Fleshy textured with earthiness, sour cherry, dried meats, amaro too. Orange juice, blood orange, dried herbs and fennel notes, mint and dark cherry. Such a great expression here. Tannins slightly gummy but wrap beautifully around the palate. Charming wine of rustic nature but great beauty."

96 / 100

Wine Enthusiast

"Loaded with finesse, this wine has enticing aromas of rose, woodland berry, pine forest and herbs. Elegantly structured, the delicious palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and wild mint framed in tightly knit, polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it well-balanced."

94+ / 100

Gary Walsh

"Red fruit, earthy and biscuity, spicy strawberry, minty perfume. Fine boned, some orange juice character alongside a clip of orange peel bitterness, brick dusty tannin, slight warmth and tang, some development to colour here too, though that’s not so much of an issue with Barolo. Spicy and a little meaty on the finish. Classic feel. Approachable now too, I feel."

93 / 100

"The 2016 Barolo Liste, usually a powerhouse, is decidedly laid back relative to the wines that were made here in the past. Medium in body and translucent in feel, the Liste has plenty to offer. Readers should expect a Liste that is more about finesse than raw power. The 2016 is very nicely done, although it is not especially typical of Liste. Time in the glass brings out attractive hints of spice, iron and wild flowers."
