Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Year after year, this Mrziano Abbona's offerings maintain such a reasonable price/quality ratio.
This Barolo is sitting on around five years of age amd it still has a bit of life to go.
100% Nebbiolo, with traditional aromatics of tar, florality, walnut shell, and bright red berries.
The flavours are lip-smacking and juicy. A lot more taught berry, smoke, spent coffee grounds, nutmeg and baking spice.
Decanting gently for an hour would really help this wine. You could lie a few down and have something affordable and genuinely interesting to wow houseguests.
Pair this with the classic truffle risotto for a feel of Piemontese richness and style.
La Pieve 2014 is a well-priced and full-bodied Barolo with burnt citrus, loads of dark fruit, dark cherry, tar, smoky, toasty, leather and spicy flavours on the palate. Tannins are grippy on this 100% Nebbiolo and the wine could benefit from two to three more years in cellar. If pouring now, decant for two hours and pair with a prime rib roast. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
