  • Barale Castellero 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Tight and leathery on the nose with a hint of something nutty, dried strawberry, and nice herbal base notes along with a little soil, italian plum and rose petals aromas. Classically austere, fresh, and very elegant in the mouth, this displays awesome potential with gorgeous, length and fine richness to the tightly wound strawberry and dark ch... Read More

  • Barale Dolcetto d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Violets out the ass, like amazingly so, followed by almonds, crushed black plum and graphite. This is medium bodied to lighter styled with very fresh, very pretty fruit that is lively on the palate with great inner mouth perfumes. Neither as complex nore as intense as the nose, the palate here is lightly fruity, fresh, with lovely soft tannins.... Read More

  • Having just returned from visiting three dozen wineries in Piedmont I sit ready to start processing all that I’ve learned but to be honest I have come away from my annual visits distinctly confused. Perhaps it’s the vintage I’ve just tasted, 2009 in Barolo, a wildly inconsistent and unusual vintage to say the least. Then again perhaps it’s the p... Read More

  • Fratelli Barale Barolo Castellero 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Seared stones, lingonberry jam, sandy soil, prosciutto skin. Very soft tannins and good acidity with nice intensity of flavors on the leathery end of the spectrum. Nice and broad in the mouth with really good depth of flavor. Intense cherry and almost plum fruit here with a deep bed of savory elements and mint on the finale. The wine finishes wi... Read More

  • Fratelli Barale Barolo Monforte d'Alba Bussia 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and full of mineral water freshness on the nose with base notes of meat, salty earth, salted plum, camphor and sour cherry fruit. A lovely mouth-feel. This opens to be fresh and clear, rich with bright and precise inner mouth perfumes of wild herbs, sour wild cherry and strawberry. The ripe tannins are soft, making this not rich or powerf...

  • As many of you already know, Barolo is my favorite wine. I look forward to my annual visits to the region, where I taste several hundred wines each year. As can be the case with such repetitive visits, I have pretty much settled on my favorite producers, those who can turn out wines each year that are representative of the soil from which they s...

  • Fratelli Barale Barolo Castellero 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The taste in in my opinion is nice like a modern Barolo should be. It is something that cannot be taken for a different wine. Nice and clean in the mouth. Read More
