Re: Traditional vs. Modern Barolo / Barbaresco

Could could use an extended maceration time with roto fermenters to great a more extracted 'modern' wine? I.E., maceration time alone is not as relevant as the methods used alongside? Responding to this old query.... As I recall, for the modernists, the point of the rotofermenters was to extract fl...

Re: How to make the most of young Barolo?

.... A related question: is Barbaresco generally more early maturing than Barolo? If so, and because it looks that the wines are less expensive, that may be my ticket to enjoying great Nebbiolo.

Re: How to make the most of young Barolo?

Try your young barolo with some fatty food to cut through the youthful austerity. A fatty pork chop, prosciutto etc. I like the pairing of young barolo with prosciutto. 2016s need time, but not 20 years imho. They may be approachable in the same year as 2013s. So if you have 2013, don't be afraid of...
