  • 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...

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • 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

  • While updating the wine notes I wrote during this year’s Nebbiolo Prima, in this case for the 2007 Barolo of the village of La Morra, I was struck again by the variability of this year’s crop of wines.La Morra is known as a region to produce a softer style of Barolo, one that plays into the hands of the many modernist producers there. The modern... Read More

  • If you’re interested in 2007 Barolo, you should check out my report, Don't Belive the Hype, which was published earlier this year after I spent two weeks in the region. I found many of the wines to be less than the stellar creations that many critics might want you to believe. I love Barolo and its producers, but the truth is that 2007 is a spot... Read More

  • If one looks to Castiglione, as I did last week, for indications regarding the overall quality of a vintage, then one can look to Monforte for signs of the cracks in that vintage. In Monforte, one finds a very broad spectrum of producers experimenting with virtually every style of Barolo known. While some producers are consistently finding their... Read More

  • So, should we be excited? Well, a lot of the wine media and critics parade would have you believe so, but if you’re like me and prefer more traditionally proportioned wines, a word of caution is in order.2007 is another hot climate vintage for Piedmont, and the wines certainly show it. While many of the wines show a much greater understanding of... Read More
