Over the last decade, we have witnessed the widespread realization that vintages can vary greatly between Barolo and Barbaresco. This fact was once again confirmed in 2014, where Barbaresco received significantly less rain and no hail, producing extraordinary wines. Yet, it goes far beyond vintage conditions, as producers across the region have been motivated by the success of their neighbors. This has created a renewed sense of place, instilling in winemakers the importance of terroir and cleanliness in the cellar just in time to take advantage of an excellent succession of vintages from 2011 through 2015.
