The confirmation of Barolo 99 and the surprise of Zio 2001

Here is a brief video clip of part of the Nebbiolo Prima wine tasting organised for Denis Lin, an important Chinese journalist. Barolo Leon’s most appreciated year has been that of 1999 which has been characterised by its strength, finesse and freshness. I have also inserted under the ‘Our Wines’ icon a Barbera d’ Alba Zio Nando 2001, which has performed extraordinarily well as regards Barolo wines. I have been quite sincerely astonished at the persistent tartness which has allowed the Zio Nando stay at it very best after 9 years. I think that in future wine tastings I shall try further experiments of this type by inserting an ‘intruder’ among the most famous Barolo.
