Elio Altare Barolo 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nice dried fruit base notes greet the nose along with a touch of oak, and hints of rose petals and licorice in this simple, high-toned and nicely aromatic wine. There are nice acids early on the palate with a little touch of heat followed by lots of woody tannins that may be sweet but they are there. There’s a nice core of fresh fruit here though the savory wood influences tend to cover most of it up, and the finish is all tannins both fruit and wood. A modest wine with a lot of tannin. 85pts
