Elio Altare, Piedmont

"2015 is a radiant vintage, very deep and rich & we have every reason to think that Barolo 2015 represents one of the greatest vintages of the past few years."
— Silvia Altare

"This is a tremendous set of wines from Silvia Altare. The 2016s show just how promising that vintage is, while the 2015 Barolos are among the finest wines of the year. Readers are going to have a very hard time choosing among these wines, but that is a first-class problem. Frankly, I would be thrilled to own any of them."
— Antonio Galloni, February 2019

"In my opinion, one of the benchmarks of a truly great estate is exceptionally high, uncompromising quality across the board. Altare is without question one of those properties where every wine is well worth the effort of seeking out."  — Antonio Galloni Elio Altare is universally acknowledged to be one of the world's greatest winemakers. Altare was a leader of the revolution in cellar and vineyard technique in the Barolo zone and the resulting wines, from Dolcetto to Barbera to Barolo, are often considered to be the ultimate expressions of the soft, fragrant and lush qualities characteristic of the commune of La Morra, and today Altare is mentor to many of the younger generation of La Morra 'Barolisti'.

We just can't get enough of these wonderful wines..Allocations are very limited on these fabulous reds - which year in, year out represent some of the best value wines to be found anywhere in Piedmont. We wish we could triple our stocks! - but alas there is barely a drop left after every vintage. We are proud to offer them on a first-in first-served basis to our valued fine wine customers.
*Wines are due Late April 2020
