Arborina Barolo Nebbiolo 1998

Intense nose of dark fruit, fresh roses, black licorice, tar with some balsamic. Sweet cherries with medium tannins. Polished and nicely integrated.

Unoperuno Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Special treat here tasted at the winery... Barolo destemmed by hand. For some reason had less oomph and structure and that tannic mouthfeel that I enjoy. How could you not appreciate the effort though! This is a priceless bottle #barolo #baroloboys #arborina #elioaltare — 8 years ago

Cascina Nuova Cerretta Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Chocolate, black roses, initially big black fruit and bright red fruit framed by a crisp minerality and Orange soda soaked tar. Loved it instantly, but like a Proustian girlfriend viewed in the changing light of the moon, this lycanthropic she-devil turned dark, and her venomous fangs, popping out to feed left me in a shadow of big tannins (lovely) and undulating demoniacs. Bad vintage, over-extracted, but great effort in a really bad vintage. Hence the rating. Haters gonna hate! I love you! #ElioAltare #Barolo #piedmontesewines — 9 years ago
