Food Pairings for Talisker Distillers Edition
The 2006 Dolcetto d-Alba is a full-bodied wine packed with jammy dark blueberries, licorice and tar. It offers notable length as well as finesse, with a characteristic bitterish note on the finish. This is an excellent, well-balanced effort in a vintage which has produced unusually ripe, concentrated Dolcettos. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2009. Elio Altare-s wines represent the finest of the artisanal tradition, so it can hardly be surprising that he has once again produced some of the vintage-s most compelling Barolos. In fact, with his 2003 Barolos Altare shows just how far ahead of the pack he is. Now that he is officially -retired,- Altare is even more philosophical than in the past. -At the end of the day 50% of what makes a wine great is luck,- says Altare, in his characteristic self-deprecating style. If that is the case Altare must surely be one of the luckiest growers on the planet. -This is my 40th harvest, yet each vintage has a unique story to tell, which is what makes wine so fascinating.
