Critic Notes

Here's a solid expression of Nebbiolo with delicate, almost Burgundian lines. The 2014 Barolo gives off an initial impression of greater power and density. This effect does not last long because the more you contemplate the bouquet, the more you are made aware of its delicate and fine nature. There are blue fruit aromas backed by very pretty tones of crushed mineral, ash and pressed violets. The mouthfeel is broad and persistent, albeit less dense or rich compared to past vintages. Marco Marenga tells me that 2014 reminds him of the 1996 vintage, thanks to the wine's ability to maintain its natural freshness. Jun 2018, www.robertparker.com

The first time I remember being bewitched by his wines was during the 2011 En Primeur tastings. In such an inconsistent vintage where many wines tasted green and astringent, his range of ...

2011 Barolo: "Intrigante"

The FINE+RARE Barolo Anteprima 2010
Last week we held one of the most exciting tastings we can remember at our offices: the FINE+RARE Barolo Anteprima 2010.

The FINE+RARE 'Four Decades of Barolo' Dinner
Last week fourteen of FINE+RARE’s customers joined us for a very special dinner at Alyn Williams. The theme: Four Decades of Barolo. We’ve been making as much noise as possible about this region of late, and much of this noise has been focussed on the recently released, and quite brilliant, 2010 vintage.  We thought we’d open a few bottles with some ...
