Lot 260 Barolo 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Lot 260 is textbook Barolo redolent with blackberry and raspberry fruit intermingling with fresh tobacco, forest floor, and balsamic notes. With its silky texture, excellent minerality, and fantastic overall structure this wine offers waves of pleasure and excellent aging potential (10-15 years). Fruit up front with plenty of grip in the rear, this wine comes together beautifully in a long fruit- and spice-tinged finish. Cameron Confidential: This Barolo is a single vineyard designate wine sourced from the Badarina Vineyard in the Serralunga d’Alba district in Piedmont, Italy. Owned by one of Piedmonts largest private land owners, this vineyard is its prized holding and the best “Cru” in their portfolio. We tasted this wine up against other 2007 vintage Barolo’s all scoring over 93 points from the Wine Spectator and this was the best wine we tasted, hands down. In fact, the little brother wine to the Badarina scored 91 points and there is frankly no comparison between the wines. Aged for 30 months in oak casks before going to barriques for 6 months. Bottled aged 6 months before release. Fantastic.
