Have not had that many Barolo's, more of a Brunello fan. QOTD-this past weekend it was my Man Phil. http://www.winelx.com

    Um, I may be crazy, but you can give wine a whirl, but you can’t give cheese a whirl. Unless it’s cheese wiz.

    Barolos kick ACE! My favorito…well, maybe it’s a tie with PN.

    Anyway, hmmm, my guess on the Masters. I’m guessing Zach Johnson, but it’s just a guess.

    Super great ep, Gary. And you nailed it: “tough guy with the upturned collar”, wahaaaaa!
    I adore the Prunotto’s. They’re not completely classic Barolo anymore, but they bring such autumnal profoundness with the ample juiciness. Yet, I had a Barb d’Asti few weeks ago, and that was one hell of a disappointment. Structureless, unbalanced, dull, … how on earth … ?
    Anyway, QOTD: did or do I know who? What’s that master stuff anyway? :-D

    Come on Gary! – Just tasted the Prunotto 2001 vs the Elio Altare 2001. I don’t agree – and I know about paletes and stuff…
    The Altare is a modern barolo, but not at all shiraz-like. I’va had the Altare several times before, and what I can say for sure is that it is extremely floral, very perfumy, and actually a little like nice Chambolle-Musigny.
    The Prunotto is a very good barolo, and much more of a value – however, it has nowhere near the intensity of the altare, and for me, borders more an a new world edge than the Altare. Have you – Gary, tasted the altare before?
    Oh, and by the way – I am so much closer to italy, and yet the Wine Library price on the altare is so low! Nice job! (not for me though!)

    ok, so I’m catching up on missed eps. GREAT speech on the “I only like this” snobs in the wine world. Love it.
