97 points Kerin O'Keefe: "Aromas of blue flower, woodland fruit and spice come to the forefront. Still youthful austere, the structured, elegant palate delivers ripe Morello cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and baking spice framed in firm, refined tannins. It’s energized and balanced, with vibrant acidity. Drink: 2027–2044. (Oct 2022)"

96 points James Suckling: "Transparent and bright with floral, orange peel and lavender. Medium to full body. Firm and racy tannins. Chewy and velvety. Purity is the right word to describe it. Drink after 2028. (7/28/23)"

95 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "With fruit from the Altare family's historic vineyard, with rows that descend from the panoramic terrace in front of the tasting room, comes the 2019 Barolo Arborina. This wine boasts a unique flavor profile with more emphasis on tart fruit, cassis and crisp cherry. The wine is soft and velvety to the palate, and it shows finely integrated tannins coupled with a solid textural frame. Arborina is not one of the historic crus of the appellation, but it is an excellent site that is celebrated for its consistent wines. Drink: 2025-2042. (8/24/23)"
