Editorial Reviews for Elio Altare Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Vigna Arborina
While opening slowly this is obviously woody but with nice floral tones. There is bittersweet chocolate here over dark fruit with touches of waxiness and earth. The perfumes tend to drift away as notes of lilac and earth are replaced with oaky coffee tones but the deep florality struggles mightily to reassert itself. Sweetly fruited in the mouth with fine balance and good focus this none-the-less has a touch too much oak. The plush texture is pleasant and the fine tannins polished but the overall feel of the wine is a bit too matte and lacks a bit of juicy liveliness. Solid but a bit muddled. 2008-2018 86pts
The nose came off as restrained to me as if I was smelling Barolo through a veil with light notes of red fruit and roses. On the palate, I found cherry with old cedar, which lead to a soft tannic pull on the finish. This bottle did not receive the same decanting and the others in the flight and may have really come around with more time.
92-94 points Robert Parker: :The dark ruby/plum-colored 1998 Barolo Brunate exhibits a smoky, mineral, jammy strawberry and black cherry-scented nose with notions of leather, pain grille, and spice box. The wine has fabulously well-integrated wood, tannin, and acidity in addition to a complex, layered mid-palate and finish. The outstanding balance, purity, and seamlessness are immensely admirable. Enjoy this 1998 Barolo over the next 12-15 years.
