Acclivi Barolo Nebbiolo 2006

Wow. Classic tar, leather, red fruits. Has a briny olive character that’s super unique. Stunning. — 10 days ago

Classic Barolo. More secondary leather and tar than fruit. Still has tannins.

Albe Barolo Nebbiolo

Chiaroscuro is an art term for the juxtaposition of light and dark. Think Baroque stuff. Think Caravaggio and my personal fave Artemesia Gentileschi. Can I get any more pretentious in my reference? Probably but I won’t. Really good Barolo does this dang chiaroscuro thing. Vajra does this. The dried plum, roasted plum, almost overripe roses and perhaps...cocoa sipped while sniffing an old leather book are dark. But the acid and body are bright and light. Ridiculously good. Wine is art. — a day ago

Langhe Freisa 2013

Freisa is like Nebbiolo without the visual lightness and clarity. Lots of red fruit and big tannins. Aromas of blackberries, cherries, mint, sage, and tobacco. Has a softness that folds nicely into puckery tannins. Mineral earthy metallic elegant finish. Terrific Piedmontese alternative to Nebbiolo. — 5 hours ago

San Lorenzo di Verduno Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Super tight, needs a good while in a decanter to show its face but what a pretty face it is, think Heidi Klum... — 11 days ago

Elio Altare

Vigneto Arborina Barolo Nebbiolo

Color : Red
Wine estate : Elio Altare
Designation : Barolo
Name : Barolo
Country : Italy
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : Elio or rather Silvia Altare transports us in a magnificent adventure on the side of Barolo and more precisely to the Morra. A nose of cherry jam, coffee and leather. On the palate, an intense complexity with silky tannins, tasty and fresh. Aromas of liquorice and a beautiful finality that lasts.
