I know, I know, I know that I have the 1990 as one of my top ten Baroli, but the '89 deserves a spot up here too, maybe even more so. These two bottles of wine are so different yet both so amazing. In comparison, the '89 is still a tween, while the '90 is roaring into its young adult life.

My top ten Barolo of all time
I taste a lot of Barolo and I figured it was time to list some of my highest scoring experiences. Some are hard to find gems, but there are also some surprisingly affordable and available bottles to be found here. I know there are a number of aged wines here that are very hard to come by, but If you take nothing else from this list, at least take my word that is it worth buying Barolo on release and cellaring it to maturity. it's one of the main reasons I started my own cellar.
