Equiv. £150.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

The first vintage of this was 2011 and the Altares may regret ever making this, it’s so good they did not, and will not, get away with it being a one-off. The wine gives as much pleasure as it gave the Altare family pain to make. This is a selection of the top grapes within the Arborina vineyard - destalked berry by berry, hence the wine's name "Uno per Uno," meaning each berry was picked "One by One." This method avoids crushing and keeps berries intact giving great finesse to the tannins and precision to the fruit. Four barrels were made, less than 100 cases. Compared to the Barolo Arborina, this is more velvety and textured, very different in profile. Smooth caressing and sensual with great complexity. Notes of dried fruit, cherries, forest berries and blueberries. Silky, floral with very pretty fruit character and a savoury sappy, saline and spice touch.
