2004 Barolo: The Cream Rises to The Top

Two thousand four confirms its status as one of the all-time great vintages for Barolo. The long, moderate growing season and late harvest produced a set of beautifully perfumed, layered Barolos that are built on class and finesse.

1988 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte

What a pleasure it is to taste older vintages of Le Pergole Torte (loosely translated, “the rickety or dodgy canopies”). The 1988, blessed with what I think is one of the prettiest of Alberto Manfredi’s many wonderful labels, is still a remarkably solid, youthful wine made while Montevertine founder Sergio Manetti was still alive.
