Excellent condition for its age with good level and nice clean label.
The "King" of Italian reds, Barolos are elegant and aristocratic wines which are made with selected Nebbiolo grapes grown in the very limited hilly district around the village of Barolo, in the Langhe area. Barolo is often described as having the aromas of tar and roses and the wines are noted for their ability to age and usually take on a rust red tinge as they mature. Barolo wines from this era tended to be rich in tannin making them ideal wines for cellaring. It can take more than 10 years for the wine to soften and become ready for drinking.
We have opened and enjoyed a several Barolos from the 1950's and have always been pleasantly surprised at how fresh they taste. Inevitably, they are lighter and have more sediment than their younger counterparts though remain complex and fine.
A superb example of a 1950 Barolo which is in really good condition and would make a lovely gift.
