1961wine tasting notes, The Wine Advocate, 92 rating
The 1961 wine Barolo Riserva, a library release directly from the Borgogno cellars, offers up plenty of dried cherries, dried roses, licorice and tobacco, all framed by firm, dusty tannins. Despite its mid-weight body and age, the wine shows plenty of depth and fine overall balance. Borgogno offers an incredible range of older vintages. The estate decants these older bottles to remove sediment, tops them off with wine from the same vintage and re-corks the wines prior to selling them. In the past, I haven’t been a huge fan of the library releases because a number of bottles have come across as over-manipulated and exceedingly fresh to the point of delivering little of the mature-Barolo experience readers expect from a 60-year old wine. Not here, though, the 1961 wine Riserva is simply beautiful from start to finish.
1961 wine Harvest - outstanding vintage; a very hot and dry summer helped the recovery of a
spring vegetative delay; excellent maturation of the grape; high quantities of the
grapes in terms of volume. Winemaking: regular fermentation and submerged cap
maceration; racking off during the last days of November. Ageing: two years in
concrete vats and over three years in big Slavonian oak barrels. Bottling: July 1967.
Barolo Borgogno - These precious bottles could have some sediment settled in the bottom, for
this reason decanting the wine few minutes before the service is recommended.
Perfect pairing - We think it is wrong to recommend a “perfect” food - wine pairing, because
everyone have their personal ideas and tastes. However we can suggest with whom
it is perfect to drink this wine. With everybody!
