Elio Altare Nebbiolo Barolo Vigneto Arborina 2001
External Reviews for Elio Altare Nebbiolo Barolo Vigneto Arborina
Good full red. Red cherry, minerals and a hint of goat cheese on the vinous nose. Cool and lively in the mouth, with a note of candied red fruits. Not hugely deep for an Altare Barolo, but vinous and penetrating. Quite classy for a wine from a vineyard that Altare has always described as premier rather than grand cru quality.
The 1998 Barolo Arborino boasts a glorious perfume of overripe black cherries intertwined with Asian spices, new oak, and flowers. Layered, gorgeously concentrated, superbly balanced and seamless, with fabulous fruit, good underlying tannin, and a long, 40+ second finish, it can be drunk now and over the next 15 years.
The 2001 Arborina, very floral on the nose with penetrating aromas of smoke, roses, and a light touch of vanilla, is very rich and substantial, broad and authoritative but very plushy and supple, a wine with superlative aging prospects, a minimum of fifteen years.
Bright and superclean with mineral, berry and raspberry aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a caressing finish. Very fine. Long and silky. Best after 2007.
I have tasted nearly every vintage of Elio Altareandrsquo;s Barolo normale back to 1982 and have seldom been disappointed. The dark-ruby colored 2001 displays a very beautiful and delicately spiced nose, along with flavors of small red fruits and licorice. Offering excellent follow-through as well as length on the palate, it is a Barolo of much harmony and overall balance that comes across as quite classic. Anticipated maturity: 2011andndash;2019.
Medium red. Complex, fruit-driven aromas of cherry, red currant, plum, licorice, spice and camphor. Fresh, intensely flavored and nicely delineated, with moderate depth. Lively acids carry the red fruit flavors. Intriguing hint of blood orange. Very fine tannins will not get in the way of enjoying this wine early.
Loads of fresh blackberry and cherry aromas to this young wine. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a caressing mouthfeel. Long finish. This is elegant and refined for a young Barolo. Best after 2007.
