    Drinking our first Barolo. Michele Chiarlo Barolo Brunate 2001. First sip we weren’t impressed, but the more we drink it the more we like it. Exploding licorice. Really long finish! We, with a little bit of you, are changing the wine world.

    I tasted some of the Borgogno Reserve wines in Chicago back in May. They have a very nice Library collection at the winery and they let out a little each year. I tried a 96 with the 2000. Try the Cocito Barbaresco out of the Marc de Grazia Book. Very Nice.

    I have never had a Barolo, but have tried a low-end Barbaresco, which was pretty nice. I have 3 Barolo’s in my collection, and am looking forward to trying them. They sound like my style; elegant but structured with autumnal/ floral characteristics.

    …and with a lot of me we are changing the wine world, aren’t we? Barolo is kicking arse! I am big Barolo lover. One of the best wines I ordered in a restaurant was a Barolo for 90 Swiss francs a qpr steal right there!

    whaddaya know I want to get into Barolos and my friends at WLTV have a couple of episodes for me to watch!! You guys rock.

    QOTD: Just had an 03 Michele Chiarlo Barolo, and I will definitely say it intrigued me more than anything else. Nebbiolo is such an interesting grape. Have had a Gaja Conteisa, and just recently the Gaja Sito Moresco, and I’m definitely getting hooked on the Nebb.

    GV â?? Iâ??ve got a lot of Barolos in my cellar and have been drinking them for many years. Iâ??ve made several trips to the Piedmonte and have to say it is by far the best wine region to visit. All of Italy is crazy about wine but this place is over the top! Italian wines and especially Barolos are made to go with food. The truffles and earthy flavors of the Langhe match perfectly. Truffle season and harvest are in October, go, you will never regret it. Once you try a Barolo and you truly study them, youâ??ll always love them.

    QOTD: Best Barolo Iâ??ve ever had is a toss up between a 1997 Paolo Scavino Bric del Fiasc and 2001 Roberto Voerzio La Serra.

    vietti 2001 barolo. after years of having viette’s “entry level wines, i knew it was time to step it up. these wines are gorgeous. nebbiolo has quickly surpassed pinot noir as my favorite. the viette goes down as one of the single best life experiences. ahh… if only i could afford more.

    i know this has been 2 years since it aired, but I checked out the archives for barolo episodes because of the 1955 and 1958 Giacomo Conterno Monfortino and 1961 Giacosa Barbaresco I had tasted last week. Nebbiolo is fast becoming my favorite grape and Barolo and Barbaresco clearly on top 5 of my list of favorite wines right now.

    Awesome episode. I hope that the Nebbiolo grape takes off somewhere else (like in Virginia) so that we can get a shot at these awesome wines in a more affordable price range.

  • hokiewino

    QOTD: I've only ever had a Barolo once and it was amazing. I definitely wish I could afford to get them more often.

  • Andrew

    You still a Kellen fans, Gary? The good thing is that you can always just slap a “Sanchez” name tag on that #6 jersey. Haha.

  • John_Kenneth_J

    qotd: I have but only a couple of times when a distributor is hosting a tasting of their portfolio, haven't rolled the dice on buying one yet, so I can't say I have a fav.

  • corkscrew

    Barolo's good stuff, but still like a Brunello more. So much for that Jet QB. http://www.winelx.com

    in hindsight, hilarious comment about clemens looking like brett favre

  • http://enotecamarcella.wordpress.com/ Marcella Newhouse

    Better late than never… QOTD: I can't pick just one! I can say I love the more feminine style from La Morra. One of my favorite producers is Mauro Veglio (next door to Altare, and referring to episode 210, I agree with you Gary, Altare is certainly not my fave. I'd always pick a Veglio over Altare). The M Veglio Gattera vineyard is a great value and usually ready for more early drinking but I usually prefer the Arborina vineyard for longer aging. Of course now I have to contradict my preference for La Morra Baroli and say one of my all-time favorite producers is Conterno Fantino of Monforte d'Alba. Recently I had also a Dom Clerico 1998 Percristina and it was divine. Another one I really enjoyed recently is the Castello di Verduno Massara Vineyard 2001. It was lovely, perfumey and so elegant.
