Coming from vineyards in La Morra this oak-aged DOC nebbiolo is one of Elio Altare's signature wines and a bottling that will compete against the best of Barolo in a given vintage. This 2009 speaks volumes to that comparison. Fine aromas of vanilla rose and licorice are shy at first but keep giving more every time I go back to the glass. Pure silk on the palate waves of acidity and crisp red fruit rebound on a long finish with well-integrated mouth-coating tannins. Very clean and composed this is flat out delicious now and will be enjoyable for the next decade or more. Ryan Moses.

Marked by plenty of rich cherry up front this red is dense with muscular tannins that leave a tough impression for now. Balanced by a sweet fruit finish. Best from 2014 through 2020. BS Wine Spectator.

The 2009 Langhe Arborina (Nebbiolo) jumps from the glass with freshly cut flowers red berries and mint. This energetic impeccable wine boasts incredible class and sheer elegance. It is a gorgeous wine full of energy and polish. Here too it is evident Nebbiolo did better than Barbera in 2009. The oak needs time to settle and the overtness of the fruit needs to melt away a bit before the 2009 enters its early peak of maturity. This is a great showing from Altare. Anticipated maturity: 2015-202
