REGION ,Piedmont, Italy ,,VARIETAL,Nebbiolo,,TASTING NOTES,90pts Wine Advocate,"The 2006 Barolo is a medium-bodied offering with attractive, perfumed fruit. Though somewhat slender, the wine offers excellent balance, albeit in a smaller-scaled style than is normally the case. The wine opens up nicely in the glass, yet it remains a touch compact. Over nearly a decade of visiting Altare on a regular basis I have tasted just about every wine made here, including many from lesser vintages. The surprises have always been on the upside, so it will be interesting to see what happens here.",,90pts International Wine Cellar,"mostly declassified fruit from Arborina; there was no Brunate in 2006 due to hail) Good deep red with ruby highlights. Expressive aromas of raspberry, marzipan, tobacco and underbrush. Dense and sweet, with lovely depth to its raspberry and cherry flavors and plenty of framing energy. Just a tad dry on the aftertaste, but this is impressive for normale."

Nebbiolo pairs well with big flavors such as rich lamb and beef dishes, stews, any mushrooms or root vegetables, veal, and aged cheeses.
