Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Barolo Arborina is a fantastic expression that boasts a seamless fusion of dark fruit and spice. It delivers character, power and a feminine side that comes forward thanks to pretty floral definition. Pressed violets and roses rise from the glass. Elio Altare makes his wines on the verge of reduction (meaning with minimal contact with oxygen) as a way of safeguarding the aromatic intensity. In the mouth, the wine awards fine tannins and silky, long persistency.

Wine Spectator Cherry, licorice, tar and tobacco notes permeate this dense, muscular red. A salty mineral element emerges as this broadens on the tarry finish. Burly tannins. Best from 2020 through 2036. 500 cases made.
