Tasting Notes

Monica Larner writes: "One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various expressions of Barolo are all aged from two to three years in botte grande."

    I have been anxiously awaiting the return of the Barale line to our stores. Not only do I love this entire line from Sergio, but they represent some of the best deals we carry from this part of Italy. What makes this year even more exciting for the Langhe Nebbiolo is the magic of the 2016 vintage. The wine opens up with generous bright cherry and spice notes complementing layers of wild herb. Carried by bright acid and layers of integrated tannin this wine is a perfect food wine and at the price is definitely worth stocking up on.

    Barale is back! This is soft and accessible and chock full of red cherry fruit and wild herbs. Nicely structured with tannins and acidity which makes it especially fantastic with any dish that includes mushrooms and red meat. Give this about 45 minutes of air.

    Barale's 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo was one of our most popular Italian red wines this past year and customers and staff alike have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of their 2016. This latest release is both soft and generous with a medium-bodied palate of spiced red fruits backed by mild tannins and bright acidity. More often than not, good Langhe Nebbiolo sells for over $20 per bottle, especially those aged in oak like this one. While this is perfect to open and drink now, the price is irresistible.
