Top 2007 Barolo

My picks for the best of Nebbiolo Prima


Next » 1 of 16
Top 2007 Barolo I've already gone over my thoughts on the 2007 vintage in Barolo, so I won't repeat what was said there. I will, however, note that this vintage has produced some very surprising wines; wines that I have found lacking in the past were among my favorites at this year's Nebbiolo Prima, the worlds preeminent Nebbiolo tasting event!

I've listed my raw notes that follow in a general order from my favorites down, but this list does represent the wines that really struck me. While the tasting I attended was not blind, I did my best to not pay attention to the pourers, which has had some interesting results!

The Nebbiolo Prima event is broken down over five days, with Barolo taking up just over three of those days. Each producer is allowed to submit two wines and the wines are presented by commune, and further by cru within those communes. Wineries with both of their wines on my top list are listed first, though I lead off with the most impressive wines of the tasting (the only Barolo this cantina produces) and my top scoring wine this year, with one of only three 9/10 scores I gave, roughly correlating to an (89-92) point score.

These wines are currently avaialble as pre-arrivals.
