Elio Altare Barbera Langhe DOC Vigna Larigi 2004
External Reviews for Elio Altare Barbera Langhe DOC Vigna Larigi
Altare?s 2004 Barbera d?Alba Larigi is the first in a series of stunning wines I tasted from that vintage. Judging by these wines 2004 is shaping up to be an extraordinary vintage for Altare, one of the region?s long-time spiritual leaders. The 2004 Barbera d?Alba Larigi displays awesome purity in its perfumed nose and vibrant personality. Packed with layers of ripe fruit, sweet toasted oak and licorice notes that unfold in the glass, it possesses outstanding concentration balanced by a lively minerality that gives the wine its sense of balance and proportion. It is a superb effort from Elio Altare. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016.
