  • Elio Altare Barbera Langhe DOC Vigna Larigi 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Three day fermentation, 100 percent new oak, for 18 months, Floral and red fruited on the nose with plenty of minty wood and toasty spice. In the mouth this is low with a certain lifeless density.

  • 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

  • Elio Altare Barolo Arborina 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

  • Elio Altare Barolo 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Nice dried fruit base notes greet the nose along with a touch of oak, and hints of rose petals and licorice in this simple, high-toned and nicely aromatic wine. There are nice acids early on the palate with a little touch of heat followed by lots of woody tannins that may be sweet but they are there. Theres a nice core of fresh fruit here though...
