The 2001 Barolo Vigneto Arborina brings together the richness of 2000 along with the structure of the 1999, two qualities it has always shown. The flavors are deep, dense and beautifully laced together, yet today, the 2001 speaks to finesse above all else. Just at the early part of its drinking window, the 2001 will drink well for another 10-15 years.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2031

The 2001 Barolo Arborina is still quite vibrant and primary. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint and licorice take shape in the glass as this gorgeous, polished Barolo opens up in the glass. There is plenty of Arborina tannic backbone and freshness to support the long, energetic finish. This is a dazzling wine from Elio Altare. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2026.
