  • 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.
