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.
I have tasted nearly every vintage of Elio Altare’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: 2011–2019.
The 2001 Barolo Arborina shows a darker ruby, with a captivating, sweet nose of spices and minerals. On the palate it reveals darker flavors than the normale, with plenty of ripe fruit and sensations of dark raspberry and plums. Full-bodied and structured, with a very long finish, it will benefit from some bottle age and drink well to at least age 20. Anticipated maturity: 2011–2021.
Full, deep red. Nose like a berry cocktail, with a distinctly liqueur-like ripeness. Then hugely rich in the mouth; perhaps larger-scaled than the 2000 but without quite the same silkiness of texture. Finishes with substantial tannic spine and superb persistence. Not quite as lush or suave as the 2000 but built to age. This may well be the superior wine in the long run.
Good deep red. Liqueur-like redcurrant and sour cherry candy on the nose, with woodsy and peppery nuances. Sweet, concentrated and powerful, with a more obvious tannic spine than the 2000. Finishes firm and impressively long.
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.
Dark garnet red. Ample, fine, deep aromas of ripe cherry, mint, pepper, coffee. Dry, warm, soft, rich, lusty and ripe tannins, harmonious, great balance and persistence.
