Elio Altare Nebbiolo Barolo Vigneto Arborina 1985

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose but with an emerging core of sweet candied angelica root and menthol. This seems so hard but slowly reveals a clean and fresh set of classic aromatics that show a touch of vanilla but are dominated by rose petals, a bit of roasty meatiness and herbs, and glassy sour cherry fruit. On entry this exhibits a sweet/sour contrast that is very refreshing with high-toned raspberry fruit that floats over extremely finely grained tannins. This is simple but super fresh. It’s light bodied and speaks more of Nebbiolo than Barolo but is delicious. 88pts
