“The transformation at Barale over the last handful of years is nothing less than remarkable. … Today, under the guidance of Eleonora Barale and winemaker Stefano Dellapiana, the wines, the Barolos in particular are fabulous. The 2016 vineyard designates are even better from bottle than they were from cask last year. Best of all, pricing has not caught up yet. Readers in search of fine, traditionally-made Barolos that won’t break the bank will want to check out Barale immediately.” Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, Oct 2020
“One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various expressions of Barolo are all aged from two to three years in botte grande.” Monica Larner from Wine Advocate
I visited this estate at their ‘cantina’ in 2018 on Via Roma in the heart of the town of Barolo just down from Maria Teresa of Bartolo Mascarello and was hugely impressed by their wines in tasting.
Nebbiolo vineyard planted in 1969 in Serraboella cru of Neive commune in Barbaresco. South facing at 350 metres altitude on calcareous soil.
This wine is superb – radiant, juicy, perfumed, shapely and seemingly endless finish. No doubt up there as far as quality goes from this much anticipated 2015 vintage with the glorious 2010.
