Elio Altare Barolo La Morra 2003
Wine AdvocateAltare's 2003 Barolo reveals an elegant, yet firm personality in its expression of super-ripe red fruits, spices and menthol. It offers lovely depth and precision at this level, even if it understandably lacks some freshness. Still, it is a wine with an enviable track record and should drink well for another decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.
Wine SpectatorShows strawberry jam on the nose, with some flowers. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a medium finish. Needs time to come together. Juicy and fruity. Best after 2009. 830 cases
