VERTICAL TASTING
Several years in the making, this side-by-side retrospective of Elio Altare’s Barolo Arborina and Langhe Arborina provided the backdrop for an exploration of the career of one of Piedmont’s most ambitious growers. Known for taking a chainsaw to his father’s old casks in a fit of desperation, Elio Altare is one of the architects of what is often referred to as the “modern” school in Barolo, a movement created by a group of young growers in the 1980s who wanted to shake up Piedmont’s sleepy establishment. Although Altare has made dazzling wines for decades, wh

OCTOBER NEWS   ELIO ALTARE BAROLO 2010 #1 Among The New York Times - Dining - Food Top 10 wines "[...] our No. 1 from Elio Altare, complex, structured, pure and nuanced. Altare has been foremost among the innovators in Barolo, often cited as a contrasting figure to the arch-traditionalist Bartolo Mascarello (the two producers were paradoxically good friends). But, even though our taste on the panel runs toward the traditionalists, we all loved this wine, which seemed classically shaped with no evidence of aromas or flavors from barriques" - Eric Asimov, in Good Barolo come

Labor of Love: Wine Family Women of Piemonte by Suzanne Hoffman   In Labor of Love: Wine Family Women of Piemonte, Suzanne Hoffman tells the stories of 22 wine families - including ours - rooted for generations in Piemonte’s Langhe, Roero, and Monferrato regions. The book includes over 200 photographs, many of which came from the families, and genealogies she prepared with each family. It’s a first of its kind look, filled with many behind-the-label stories, some of which were never told in print before. It’s the perfect pairing to a great bottle of Piemonte wine!

VERTICAL TASTING
Although Elio Altare is best known for the superb Barolos he crafts from the Arborina and Brunate vineyards, his entire range is among the most consistently brilliant in Italy. This truly once in a lifetime retrospective tasting traced the development of Altare’s Vigna Larigi, an old-vine Barbera made from a  tiny one-hectare plot on the Arborina hillside. For the occasion Altare opened every vintage of Larigi from 1985 to 2006 - with the exception of the 1983 and 1984, which could not be located – a rare event by any measure, most importantly because Altare himself had never
