  • Elio Altare Barolo Brunate 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Clean and focused on the nose but the aromas are weirdly of dark poppy seed paste and shoe polish. A bit smooth and anonymous in the mouth with a dark extracted feel and flavors of coffee bean, blackberry fruit, and toasty spice that are short and chunky in the mouth. 84pts Read More

  • Altare Arborina Langhe Rosso Nebbiolo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Smokey and oaky on the nose with some black fruit and licorice accents. Soft and rich on entry though with a heavy load of oak tannin leading to a weighty mid palate that shows bright red fruits but lacks freshness and detail. the fruit has a gummy candy feel, black cherry gummi bear, tactile and sweet and layered over gently spicy oak. Arguably... Read More

  • Elio Altare Barolo Cerretta 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Dark and earthy on the nose with some prune fruit aromas integrating with toasty wood, medicinal herbs, and some baking spices. This is opulent with lots of power on entry, in a focused and relatively elegant style that is absorbing the tannin fairly well. Filled with dark and slightly anonymous fruit, theres nice weight here, if this is a touc... Read More

  • Barolo Vigneto Arborina. Elio Altare 2009

    Snoothrank:

    High toned and aromatic on the nose but with lots of wood spice, making this simple but intense. This is smooth and polished in the mouth with fine grained tannins, broad wild macerated cherry flavors with hints of licorice, medicinal herbs and a little bit of mint on the back end. Another wine with lots of tannins, just wood and fruit and not m... Read More
