were an astonishing experience for me the first time I drank them
in 1978. Within days of one another, I tried a Fontanafredda 1969,
another Fontanafredda only five years old, a Poderi Luigi Einaudi 1955
and an Abbazia dell'Annunziata Ratti 1969. The Einaudi was showing signs
of age but still more than drinkable - the others were full of flavour,
more than I had ever experienced in an Italian wine up to that time.
Since my olfactory receptors are not particularly sensitive, I prefer
wines with a strong taste. Despite all the excellent Italian wines that
have developed in the past 40 years, many of which I have tried and
enjoyed, I have to say I have never lost my preference for a bottle of
wine is a DOCG wine produced entirely from the nebbiolo grape in the zone around the town of Alba, in the
Piedmont, Italy. Barolo is considered one of the
world's best red wines.
