Tasting Note:

A herculean effort. The Altares produced only 4000 bottles as opposed to the usual 12,000. A ravishing Barolo with a Pinot-like beauty and precision yet with the body and strength that give away its Piedmontese origins. Resplendent red fruit bursts from the glass, notes of alpine strawberry and red cherry, intense but lithe and charming, so persistent and mouth-watering. A blend of fruit from Serralunga, Castiglione and la Morra. Aged for 24 months in 20 percent new oak.
