Ripe, featuring plum and black cherry flavors, laced with spice and tobacco. This is kept honest by the upright tannins and lively acidity. There is power, but also grace. Fine length. Best from 2013 through 2025. (BS)
The raspberry, fresh fruit and flowers on the nose excite me. The red is full and silky, with lots going on. Racy. Better after 2013.
The 2006 Barolo is a medium-bodied offering with attractive, perfumed fruit. Though somewhat slender, the wine offers excellent balance, albeit in a smaller-scaled style than is normally the case. The wine opens up nicely in the glass, yet it remains a touch compact. Over nearly a decade of visiting Altare on a regular basis I have tasted just about every wine made here, including many from lesser vintages. The surprises have always been on the upside, so it will be interesting to see what happens here. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. (AG)
