Critic Notes

Altare is a genius in terms of turning out gloriously ripe, multidimensional, complex wines. This top-notch effort is super-rich, perfumed, and pleasing to both the intellectual and hedonistic senses. The smoky 1996 Larigi vino da tavola, a 100% barrique-aged Barbera, is a thrilling offering with a dark saturated purple color, superb ripeness, and lively acidity to buttress its concentrated, intense style. Consume it over the next 4-5 years Feb 2000, www.robertparker.com

The Sub-Regions of Barolo and their very different flavour profiles
Why is it important? Understanding the sub regions of Barolo is really worth some investigation because generally speaking each of the communes have a distinct flavour profile clearly differentiating its terroir from its neighbours. Many consumers are unaware of the different profiles and can be quite surprised by the Barolo in their glass tasting very different to the one they ...
