|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
drank march 2007 / classic barolo / plum and truffle aromas / lovely round palate / long wonderful finish
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
This wine showed an interesting nose of bergamont, musky animal fur, olive and minerals. On the palate, it was silky yet structured with focused red fruit, leather and earth. The finish was long with wild red berries.

If in the States right now I'd definitely be buying off this list. Really do like Chambers Street. How many of these were you drinking over in Italy, Fox?The non-Italians are mouth-watering, too.

Now these are proper weekend wines (or birthyear wines: see multiple candidates for a daughter and a girlfriend and a sister in there). Nice of Chambers Street to ensure that they're properly aged, too. ;-) The original carton for Burlotto 1971 Barolo Barale, Burlotto, Cappellano - and some other fine old Piedmont wineThree of our great favorit...

While Barbera is capable of producing some impressive wines it is also all too capable of producing pretty bad wines, both with capable winemaking and without. The problem lies with Barbera’s incredibly high natural acidity, and the issues th... Read More

With just a few days to go before my departure for Piedmont, I was thrilled to have been able to join in Antonio Galloni’s brilliant La Festa del Barolo this year. Featuring a tasting of 2008 Barolo, it was perfect timing; a chance for me to revisit this excellent vintage, and to help set the stage for my upcoming tastings from the 2009 vintage.... Read More
I’ve been writing a fair amount of commentary lately, some of it dealing with wine prices, but only tangentially; so today I wanted to take a look at where fine wine prices are going, and perhaps identify some smart plays for the savvy wine shopper.I’m dealing with some relatively expensive wines here, most in the $50 and up range, so while I un...

I'm thinking about taking a short trip to Piemonte, mainly to try the highly-reputed wines of the region. I'm not interested, though, in setting up visits to wineries. What I am thinking of doing is going to Slow Food recommended restaurants in Piemonte, and asking the owners or staff to help me select a wonderful wine from the region and the... Read More
