Elio Altare was quite the maverick, abandoning tradition in favour of modern techniques like green harvesting, reducing yields and the use of French oak. Leading the modernist movement in Barolo, his zeal for innovation was intended to raise the quality of the region’s wines, a mission carried on by his daughter, Silvia.

Buy one for yourself & one for the cellar — this beauty has more than enough vitality to age gracefully.
