Elio Altare

flagNorthern Italy / Italy

Altare's 1996 Barolo Arborina is reminiscent of a terrific grand cru from Burgundy's Cote d'Or. Intensely aromatic, with copious quantities of black cherry jam, earth, pain grille, and floral scents, this saturated dark ruby-colored offering reveals superb ripeness, substantial richness, a full-bodied, layered personality, adequate acidity, and sweet tannin in the finish. It is a stunning Barolo to drink now and over the next 15 years. A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel.
