2011 Elio Altare Barolo Arborina

Robert Parker Wine Advocate 94/100

Description

A deep and rich Barolo with lovely velvety tannins and a fresh and tangy background giving the wine tension and beauty. Lovely intensity. Love to drink it now but better in 2017. James Suckling
The 2011 Barolo Arborina is a fantastic expression that boasts a seamless fusion of dark fruit and spice. It delivers character, power and a feminine side that comes forward thanks to pretty floral definition. Pressed violets and roses rise from the glass. Elio Altare makes his wines on the verge of reduction (meaning with minimal contact with oxygen) as a way of safeguarding the aromatic intensity. In the mouth, the wine awards fine tannins and silky, long persistency. Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Barolo Arborina is impeccable. Plump and juicy in the glass, the 2011 wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth and pure resonance. Cloves, menthol and leather add nuance on the finish. The firm, Arborina tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the intensity of the fruit. Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media
