Tasting Report: 2007 Barolo

May 9th, 2011

Sylvia Altare, the dynamic daughter of the legendary Barolo maker Elio Altare, was pouring me her family’s range of 2007 Barolos in their winery below the town of La Morra about a month ago, and she had a huge grin on her face (watch the videos: Part 1 and Part 2). The dark ruby wines were exuding exotic aromas of dark berries and citrus that followed through to exuberant juicy palates of ripe fruit and soft tannins.

“They were already approachable from the tank,” she said. “That’s the sign of a great vintage.” Her father stood by and shook his head in agreement.
