This is my first blog entry (I hope it isn't my last)!
I would like to comment about a premium wine I tried not long ago: Prunotto Barolo, Bussia Vineyard (vintage 1997).
Only a half-bottle, I
remember buying it in 2004 (though I cannot recall the price). Ten
years after the grapes were picked off the vines, it was lovely to
drink. All the wine's 'parts' were in full glory, and it paired
beautifully with my meal (I cannot remember the exact dish).
These days, as Barolo is at such a crossroads between what is
considered 'traditionalist' and what is considered 'modern,'
enthusiasts of wine only stand to benefit from all the different styles
we are privy to enjoy of this prestigious type of wine. In the upcoming
years, I hope to open up many more bottles of Barolo.
