Scoring 18+ Dionysian Points, with 13.5% alcohol, and costing under $20 back then, the 42 year old 1978 Prunotto Barolo, served with lasagna, was wonderful!
Road tar, dried rose petal, and perfectly balanced, the Nebbiolo grape shows its best at Monforte d’Alba in Northern Italy. I shun away from the newer ones that are done on French oak and with higher alcohol. They tried to change their style to please our uneducated palate; better that we learn what the world enjoyed for centuries. In Vino Veritas.
