“I had the opportunity to try eight barolos from 1970, recently bought, ranging in price from 50 euro to 100 euro, in a German online store. The Barolo 1970 vintage came at a period of transition. Chemical treatments in the vineyards were still a novelty. The Nebbiolo wines had traditionally been built for a long future, with months of maceration and years of patient ageing in the botti (large oak barrels).”

Read more on this extraordinary tasting in Henrik Stadler’s article on BKWine Magazine: 8 Barolos from 1970.

If you want to taste great barolos (but perhaps not from 1970) you should come with us on a fabulous wine tour to Barolo and Piedmont.
