ELIO ALTARE - BAROLO DOCG ARBORINA - 2014

The Altare family acquired the domain in 1948: Joseph Altare purchased the 5-hectare property located at La Morra, in Piedmont. The vineyard planting include Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto vines. The property was made famous by Elio Altare, Joseph's grand-son. After a trip in Burgundy in 1976, Elio returned with the conviction that radical changes needed to occur in the winemaking culture and methods on his domain. Following a very challenging battle, Elio managed to implement new techniques to improve the quality of his wines. His resilience resulted in new interpretations of his vineyard marked by a focus on elegance, finesse, and balance. Elio Altare estate now covers 10 hectares and produces 60 000 bottles annually.

Tasting Note

The Elio Altare 2014 Barolo Arborina normally sees short skin maceration times (of about three days), but they were cut even shorter in this challenging vintage in order to preserve the primary fruit freshness of the wine. I was struck by the immediate and accessible quality of fruit here that seems very generous and open, even at this young stage. In fact, I have reduced the drinking window to about ten years as a result. The wine wraps thickly over the palate with ripe cherry and prune. The tannins are ripe and soft.
