Elio Altare "Arborina" Barolo 2014
93 Points Vinous
Focus, tension and a palpable sense of energy give the 2014 Barolo Arborina its distinctive feel. Barolo Arborina is often wiry in the early going, and this is very much the case here. Even so, there is lovely delineation to the red cherry, pomegranate, anise and blood orange flavors. I won't be surprised if this cool, sophisticated Barolo blossoms with a few years in bottle.
